【Presentation Title】
BUILDING UP THE CAPACITY AND CAPABILITY OF UNIVERSITY RESEARCH
ADMINISTRATION TO ADVANCE THE RESEARCH EXCELLENCE OF THE
UNIVERSITY

【Abstract】
This talk will present the development of the research administration services at the Nanyang
Technological University, Singapore during a period of intense research funding income
growth. As a result of the ambitious government driven research schemes, research funding at
the universities in Singapore has grown by several folds in the past decade. This growth has
placed significant urgency to quickly develop essential skills and manpower at the research
support office as well as the schools to cope with the growth in research grant proposals. Key
lessons learned during this growth phase include team building; networking; communication
skills especially towards researchers and funding agencies and analysis of data as well as the
reviewers’ comments. In addition, a set of research administration metrics has been developed
in the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore to measure performance in research
administration. These metrics help to identify process inefficiencies, inaccuracies in
compliance to fund guidelines; process effectiveness and financial management in the
departments. Based on the metrics that covered pre-award, post-award and financial objectives,
a Research Administration Scorecard (ReAdS) was developed to help in the assessment of
research administration performance of the departments.
