The Other Federal group within OSP is unique in that we are responsible for a very broad spectrum of federal, state and local sponsors. Due to this tremendous diversity, the members of the Other Federal team work with a great variety of different sponsors, each with their own submission requirements, grant and contract policies, and award guidelines.


Some of our major federal and state/local sponsors include:


Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

Department of Health and Human Services

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Health Resources and Services Administration

National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Department of Defense

National Science Foundation

Department of Education

Dept of Energy

Dept of Transportation


The Other Federal group manages the entire life of a grant or contract from initial review and submission, through post-award and closeout. We also create associated subcontracts and liaise with the sponsored research offices of our subcontractors. In addition, Other Federal works closely with UAB’s Office of Counsel and the UAB Research Foundation to ensure compliance with UAB policy and state and federal laws in all awards, contracts and project submissions.


To maximize the flexibility that is required to administer such a large group of sponsoring agencies, the Other Federal group appreciates your compliance with OSP guidelines in terms of timeliness of document submission to our office and inclusion of a copy of the guidelines with your proposal. This enables us to be more efficient and to serve you better. Thank you for visiting our web site. We look forward to working with you.
