SPARTA System Used for All External Funding Proposals
When seeking external support for research and other sponsored projects, a funding proposal must be entered in Sparta.
Sparta is not just for federal funding. It is also to be used for foundation funding, state awards, and contracts with industry sponsors. University personnel cannot negotiate agreements with industry until a funding proposal is entered in Sparta. In addition, a funding proposal must be entered online even when applications are made directly to a foundation.
Please consult with the Office of Research Administration or the SOM Office of Grants and Contracts if you need assistance entering a funding proposal online.
