Welcome to the Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) page
Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) provides support for the VA Boston Healthcare System research community in the following primary areas:

· negotiation of CRADAs (Cooperative Research and Development Agreements),

· and business aspects of grants and contracts.
Please contact the SPA staff as soon as you begin planning your extramural grant or contract application. We will go over the sponsor guidelines with you, help you prepare the application and guide you through all VA requirements. The SPA staff will help you formulate your budget, assist in writing the budget justification and organizing other parts of the application’s for execution and submission.
