    Mandatory grants training sessions being offered

    again Oct. 8 in Billings Hospital

    All staff responsible for pre-award and/or post-award administration of federally funded projects are now required to attend a sponsored project management training program. The University training program, which consists of two components, began this fall.

    The first component consists of a two-hour workshop, titled "Sponsored Projects Administrative Overview," scheduled for fall quarter. The next session of this workshop, aimed at staff in the Biological Sciences Division, is scheduled from 9 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8, in Billings Hospital, Room P 117.

    Individuals in other divisions who were unable to attend prior workshop sessions may attend the Oct. 8 session.

    The second component of the training program is a series of two, three-hour workshops titled "The Life Cycle of a Sponsored Project: An Integrated Approach" that will be offered during the winter and spring quarters in 1999.

    While the combined eight hours of training are required for grant and contract administrators, the sessions are also open to faculty and staff interested in understanding sponsored projects administration.

    Staff members who are required to attend will be notified through their division or department.

    Questions about the training program may be directed to Arnie Aronoff, Director of Training and Development, at 834-0914 ora-aronoff@uchicago.edu.
