College of Natural Resources

About the Department

The College of Natural Resources Research Office (CNR Research Office) is an administrative unit of the College of Natural Resources (CNR). The CNR Research Office provides services to CNR primarily through:


  • Promotion, development, and facilitation of research of the faculty in CNR,
  • Development and submission of grant and contract applications, processing and negotiations, and
  • Administration of post award accounting and grant oversight.

Promotion, development, and facilitation of research of the faculty in CNR: This includes the promotion of the research interests of CNR departments and faculty internal and external to the university; encouragement of CNR faculty to engage in scholarly research in their respective fields that will provide opportunities for students, foster continuing professional development and bring external recognition to CNR programs; providing information to CNR faculty on opportunities for research funding and collaborative interactions; seeking resources for CNR from university, state, federal and the private sectors; allocation of resources made available to the CNR Research Office including indirect costs; and serving as a primary liaison for CNR research to various governmental and private organizations/units, committees and offices internal and external to NCSU.

New hardware and software updates and changes require additional training and continual processing adjustments. Federal, state, and industry policy and procedure changes for example require referring frequently to the current changes, many of which are updated on their web pages. Accountability for the proposal processing and award documentation rests with the colleges.

Grant and contract applications, processing, and negotiations: This includes thorough review and approval of all grants and contracts originating in CNR, in whole or in part, prior to submission to the sponsors. Special attention is paid to issues of health and safety. The CNR Research Office has primary responsibility to ensure that all guidelines required by sponsors are met prior to submission of proposals and for the budget, space, and other resources committed by the CNR’s departments and/or the college to ensure that all obligations can be met. The CNR Research Office works closely with the Office of Contracts and Grants, Office of Sponsored Programs and Regulatory Compliance Services, the Purchasing Office, the Office of Finance and Business, and granting agencies on all post award activities.

Administration of post-award accounting and grant oversight: The CNR Research Office, in cooperation with CNR’ PIs and departments, has primary accounting responsibility for all research grants and contracts for which CNR’s faculty serve as PIs and for all sub-accounts to CNR’s faculty who serve as co-PIs when the PI is in another college. The college is responsible for ensuring that state, agency, and federal COS accounting guidelines, as applicable, are to be followed and that all Cost-sharing and cash matching commitments are fully documented. The CNR Research Office works closely with the Office of Contracts and Grants, the Purchasing Office, the Office of Finance and Business, and the granting agencies on all post-award activities.
