Welcome to the Research Administration Network (RAN)

Who we are

Developed collaboratively by the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) and Research Financial Management Services (RFMS), under the leadership of the Vice-Principal (Research and Innovation) and the Vice-Principal (Administration and Finance), the goals of this initiative are to:

  • Provide tools and resources to foster the professional development of McGill staff by improving their understanding of the policies and processes involved in day-to-day research administration activities;
  • Illustrate and advocate for best practices that minimize or prevent McGill and its research community from future compliance and audit issues;
  • Develop a community of practice, harnessing the knowledge and expertise that exist across the McGill community with respect to research administration;
  • Distinguish McGill as a leader in not only research excellence but also in adherence to the highest standards of research administration and compliance.

We invite all McGill staff who support faculty with their research activities to join RAN and stay informed about policies and procedures affecting research administration.
