3. PREPARING PROPOSALS.
The The International Project Management Office (OGPI) offers a comprehensive service that aims to achieve that researchers only worry about the scientific side when preparing a proposal, leaving the OGPI to take care of the administrative side as well as coordinating with the rest of the consortium partners.
4. SERVICES DURING THE EXECUTION OF THE PROJECT.
The execution phase of the project is what involves more bureaucracy at the UA. The Office for International Project Administration aims to simplify and accelerate the process so that the researcher can focus on the implementation of the scientific part of the project. There are various ways to administer the management of the project in terms of:
a. the management workload involved in the project;
b. the ability to manage this by the involved department/s.
Assigning the management of the project to a department or to the OGPI will be deciding after negotiating with the researcher.
5. ASSISTANCE IN CLOSING THE PROJECT.
All original contracts will be looked after by the Office of International Project Management and all documents from each and every phase will be kept on file.
