Welcome to ORIED!

The Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development (ORIED), a unit of Academic Affairs, works to expand the research capacity of Sacramento State’s faculty, staff, and students, and to link a range of academic and infrastructure initiatives that advance our faculty and campus connection to the regional community. ORIED supports faculty seeking external funding for their research and scholarly activities, and on behalf of the University, submits grant and contract proposals, administers internal research funds and recognition programs, facilitates the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and coordinates patent and tech transfer activities, as well as provides a full range of research integrity and compliance functions for the research enterprise.

Post-award account administration for sponsored agreements and related accounts is typically handled through the Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) office of University Enterprises, Inc. (UEI). SPA professional staff work in coordination with ORIED to support, accept, and administer the grant and contract awards received from federal, state, and private funding agencies.
