Office of Sponsored Programs

At Spectrum Health, our mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve. The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) supports this mission by partnering with physicians, clinicians, researchers, staff, and administrators from across the System to develop competitive funding proposals and manage sponsored awards in accordance with our institutional values of Excellence, Accountability, Compassion, Integrity, Respect and Teamwork.

Led by Director Harmony Van Valkenberg, the OSP is the central coordination point for all government-funded and many privately-funded Spectrum Health grants, contracts, subawards, and clinical trials. OSP personnel support the sponsored-programs enterprise with a comprehensive menu of pre- and post-award services, from project ideation to opportunity sourcing; from proposal preparation to award negotiation; and from award management to award close-out.

We also partner with the Spectrum Health Foundation in the development of internal grants and privately-sponsored research grants.

Once an award has been made, OSP provides comprehensive, customer-focused service in award administration and regulatory compliance.

Throughout the Sponsored Programs Life Cycle, OSP is here to support you. Contact us. We're here to help.
