Sponsored Projects Services (SPS)

Sponsored Projects Services is operational and continuing to provide support to the University Community

Sponsored Projects Services (SPS) staff is working remotely to support University sponsored activities and maintaining continuity in sponsored activity. We are able to manage most of our business electronically and we are working on solutions for activities that are currently managed through paper. Please continue to work with your SPS Staff for proposal submissions, award processing and establishment, post award expenditures, and reporting requirements, both financial and technical. We ask for your patience as we adjust to this ever changing and challenging approach.

If you have any specific concerns, or are encountering a problem, please feel free to reach out to the SPS Directors; Pre-award, Jeffrey Schieder, Jeffrey.schieder@buffalo.edu; Post-award, Mary Kraft, mary.kraft@buffalo.edu; and Operations, Paulette Ziff, paulette.ziff@buffalo.edu.

We remain committed to our community, remaining safe while providing the services needed, to continue supporting sponsored activities.
