Welcome to the ORA FAQ Engine. This engine was designed to help you quickly retrieve the answers to common questions asked of the Office of Research Administration staff - ranging from grant and contracts processing, compliance services to system related questions. You can use the engine in a couple of different ways. First, you can type a keyword in the 'search' box below and then click the 'search' button. The engine will retrieve a listing of questions that contain the keyword in either the question or the answer. Or, you may simply click on a menu across at the top of the page to retrieve a listing of FAQ's for a specific topic area.
