Do your research management operations need improving? SRAI offers a comprehensive review and evaluation of an institution’s research management operations, providing invaluable insights to enhance efficiency and effectiveness. These reviews are conducted by highly experienced and distinguished senior research administrators with extensive expertise in navigating the complexities of research administration.

Our evaluations delve into critical aspects of a successful research management office, encompassing a thorough examination of policies, procedures, and practices. Through meticulous analysis, we identify strengths and areas for improvement, offering tailored recommendations to optimize operational performance.

Our evaluations cover critical aspects of a successful research management office, including policies, procedures, and practices. Evaluations can be conducted in one or more of the following areas:

  • Pre-Award

The Review Process includes:

  • Working with your institution to define the scope of the project

  • Discussing issues with a host of individuals involved in the research management program
  • Analyze what was learned from the reviews and discussions
  • Identifying issues and make recommendations
