Research Services

Research Services (RS) provides College of Social Sciences faculty with front-line administrative support for procurement, budget, contracts, and human resource transactions involved in all research and training activities and works closely with the Fiscal Office and Compliance Unit Services (FOCUS) group to facilitate administrative and financial compliance with Federal, State, and University policies and procedures. Research Services will primarily support the departments and programs lacking administrative support for their research and training activities.
