Administrative Affairs

  • penn edu

The Provost Administrative Affairs Office is responsible for the financial, administrative, and human resources oversight of the departments that report to the Provost.  Administrators and support staff in the Provost Administrative and Interdisciplinary Centers can utilize this site as a shortcut to vital information, such as links to key websites, quick references for deadlines, and more.


Partnership Program

We are continuing to fund two important programs that support the research enterprise. The Research Facilities Development Fund (RFDF) and the Bridge Funding Partnership Program (BFPP). The guidelines are attached. Support for both programs comes from the same source of funds (1% of University indirect cost recovery) so Schools are urged to prioritize their requests. Please submit your proposals to the RFDF by January 17th, 2015.  Requests for BFPP will be considered throughout the spring but early requests are strongly encouraged.

Requests for both programs should be submitted to Josie Rook at
