Research Administration Services


Full Research
Lifecycle Support

Bouvé College’s Research Administration Office (BCORe), provide a full range of grants and research services to all faculty and graduate students within the College.

BCORe is your reliable partner throughout the grants management process. As a full-service, life-cycle research administrative resource, we connect with the university’s central sponsored programs office, and collaborate closely with Bouvé’s Research Development, Innovation, and Biostatistics experts.

Support and Services

The Research Development (RD) team assists Bouvé faculty in identifying suitable funding opportunities, including internal (TIER) funding, and offers workshops and training materials for competitive research proposals. Research Development is often considered pre- pre-award, because it happens prior to the start of the research lifecycle. Learn more

The Biostatistics Research Center can enhance your research capabilities and address critical biostatistical and analytical needs of any research project by collaborating with faculty, staff, and students. Learn more

Our Pre-award team ensures smooth proposal submissions by providing comprehensive support to principal investigators (PI)  who are Bouvé faculty and grad students.

We work with:

  • All external grant sponsors including federal agencies
  • Foundations and non-profit agencies
  • Community services
  • Clinical and medical centers performing clinical research trials

Services include:

  • FOA reviews
  • Checklist preparation
  • Electronic application handling
  • Budgeting
  • Documentation
  • And cost share, among other services

We secure internal approvals, liaise with subaward institutions, and offer expert assistance with biographical sketches, other support pages, federal and foundation proposals, and Just-in-Time (JIT) requests.

Rigorous compliance checks against institutional policies and sponsor requirements are conducted before grant proposals are submitted to Northeastern University Research Enterprise Services (NU-RES), with BCORe serving as a primary liaison.

Post-award support provides:

  • Timely routine and ad hoc reports to PI’s
  • Efficient grant funding management
  • Data, non-disclosure, and material use agreements
  • Payroll distribution adjustments as needed

We handle cost transfer requests, monitor grant effort, and ensure compliance with internal and external regulations.

As the primary liaison with NU-RES, we review sponsor financial reports, oversee projects from award to closeout, including invoice monitoring, journal vouchers, course buyout, and summer salary/extra comp.

Annual progress, no-cost extensions, and final reports are facilitated proactively, adhering to cleanup procedures according to institutional policy.

Our data management efforts maintain transaction activity logs and award documentation while fostering collaboration with principal investigators, administration, and sponsors to deliver exceptional customer service and resolve project-related complexities.
