Connecting the Dots for Industry Sponsored Research (Pre-Award)
It is imperative for research administrators to have knowledge of who, what and when of industry sponsored agreements which will increase their successful submissions and reduce the number of proposals returned by ORA. In this workshop we hope to impart knowledge that will enable the research administrator to better understand the process and equip them to connect the dots.

Research, Program and Proposal Development: Competing in the 21st Century
As the sponsored research funding environment has grown more competitive in recent years, sponsors have increasingly encouraged multi-investigator, interdisciplinary research projects that in turn require a more complex level of collaboration and project management support on the part of the Research Administration enterprise. This session will introduce the field of Research, Program and Proposal Development and provide an overview of the current funding environment and trends which are necessitating a broadening set of proposal development and support services available to investigators. We will discuss other university models for addressing this need as well as how Duke is responding. Recent examples of how this extended set of services has allowed Duke to remain competitive will be shared. Lastly, we will consider how the emergence of Research Development affects Research Administration and how Research Development programs can most effectively interact with Research Administration operations.
Presenters: Rick Tysor, Valorie Sterling Cook, Joanna Downer, Christine Erlien, Gwendolyn Wright

Data Security for Research Administration: Protecting the Data, Duke, and Your Job
Ever wonder why everyone is focusing on IT security laws like HIPAA, FISMA, FERPA, DCMA, and NCITPA? More importantly, do you know how they affect you and your work? Most importantly, would you like the tools you need to manage that data? Come to this fund and interactive panel and learn the basics about these laws and best practices for identifying and managing the data. This panel will be presented by Duke’s Chief Information Security Officers and Compliance Auditor.

Sub-Award Management at Duke University
This session will strive to provide its attendees with an understanding of the changes to ORA, the purpose of the Subrecipient Initiation Request Form, the new business practice now in place between ORA and OSP for outgoing subaward management.

Working with Foundations and Non-Profits: A Basic Primer
Non-profit sponsors have a wide variety of requirements that often do not match the best practices that Duke University uses for federal sponsors such as NIH, NSF, and DoD. Grant managers at all levels will benefit from this review of best practices specific to our non-profit sponsors. The complete life cycle of a non-profit sponsored award will be examined, and participants can expect to walk away with detailed information on how Duke grant administration professionals can best help their principal investigators apply for and manage such awards. If your department or division receives or could expect to receive funding from a non-profit, this session will help make your job easier and help you avoid common pitfalls with such sponsors. Sponsors under discussion include foundations, corporate philanthropy groups, professional associations and societies, non-governmental organizations, non-profit interest and advocacy groups, and others small non-profit organizations.
