“As a Certified Research Administrator I have met all the eligibility requirements necessary to be a professional research or sponsored program administrator,” says Ms. Crutchfield whose expertise in research administration includes working knowledge of both pre-and post-award administration of grants, contracts and clinical trials.
Ms. Crutchfield's knowledge of the OMB Circulars, Code of Federal Regulations, Federal Acquisition Regulations, Government Approved Accounting Procedures (GAAP), HIPPA requirements, and Human and Animal Welfare protection provides her with the tools to perform all aspects of research administration, from proposal preparation and submission to monitoring and reconciling expenditures, providing financial analysis of projects, and close out of projects. She is also experienced in many other aspects such as Change of PI, transfer to another institution, no-cost extensions, cost extensions, and contract amendments to name a few.
