Supporting UF’s $1Billion Research Portfolio

UF’s research portfolio exceeded $1 billion for the first time in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2022. UFIT supports two applications– UFIRST and myinvestiGator–that enable researchers to manage their sponsored funding. Numerous financial analysts, developers, and data engineering staff are involved each week with the maintenance of these applications.

“A world-class research institution requires world-class administrative tools. Keeping our faculty and research support teams empowered through easily accessed, up-to-date information is key,” wrote Stephanie Gray, assistant vice president & director, Division of Sponsored Programs. “UFIT helps keep UF Research running with their excellent support of UFIRST and myinvestiGator.”
