  8. Sponsored Research Performance • Awards FY08-FY11 • Awards - $130 million FY11: $77 million in FY08 • 60% in 3 years • Indirect collected FY11 $1 million over FY10 • Expenditures FY08-FY11 increasing, but • Expenditures $93 million FY11: $100million FY10

  9. Why are research expenditures declining FY10-FY11? • Expenditures always lag awards • Awards are up; so funds are in the pipeline • Variations occur: longer trend is upward • Research capital expenditures in past not fully replaced by research grants • PIs holding funds longer (no-cost extensions)

  10. What to do? • Agencies are facing cuts or leveling budgets • Agencies are/will be cutting programs; look for cash offsets • Requests for no-cost extensions not so likely - • PIs and Mason could lose funds • PIs need to spend what they have as scheduled

  11. What to do? • Educate PIs: spend grant funds on schedule • Hire top faculty talent as ongoing policy • Accelerate faculty grant support services • Accelerate unit level grant assistance & mgmt. • Target specific markets – e.g., defense • Accelerate grant intelligence gathering effort • Seek new markets, e.g., emergent economies
