Grants & Contracts Administration

Our goal is to provide Minneapolis VA investigators with professional expertise to facilitate all aspects of grant and contract submission and post-award administration. We provide these services for awards from the federal government (e.g., National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, etc.), industry, and private foundations.


Pre-award administration: We collaborate with researchers to prepare and submit high-quality competitive applications and ensure that all applications are in compliance with sponsor policies and guidelines. Work supporting pre-award management may also include:

Post-award administration: After an award is received by the institution, CVRE liaises with PIs, administrators, and staff to manage funded projects. Work supporting post-award management may also include:
