Sparta Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

CWRU's Office of Research Administration has recently added a page to its website listing answers to some of the common questions we get from Sparta users. These Frequently Asked Questions, or FAQs, range from what to do for specific error messages to how to handle common confusing situations in Sparta. We will continue to add to these FAQs, and are always open to suggestions. These questions are searchable with your browser search feature so you can look for specific keywords if you like.

The FAQs can be found at http://research.case.edu/Prop_Dev/Sparta/SpartaFAQ.cfm or on the research.case.edu website under the Sparta Info link. If you have specific questions or are having issues, you can always reach the Sparta support team at sparta@case.edu.

 
Visits by Federal Law Enforcement Officers

Many federal law enforcement agencies have university liaison programs. If you receive a visit or other contact from a federal law enforcement officer, the CWRU Compliance Office reminds you to first request identification and then to immediately contact the CWRU Office of General Counsel, 368-4286. The Office of General Counsel will communicate directly with the agency to ensure that any inquiries are addressed completely and appropriately.
