Metis manages federally funded and industry funded research programs worldwide. Metis works with the research team to recruit and hire qualified personnel; administer individual study budgets; provide monthly financial reporting; ensure regulatory compliance; provide in-house travel and procurement services; submit required reports to sponsors; and initiate and monitor subcontracts. The Metis Foundation also provides an array of post-award services designed to maintain compliance with the research award while meeting the agreed-upon timelines for achieving the research objectives. These services include preparation of financial and other non-scientific reports to sponsors, monitoring for compliance with sponsor and military site requirements, coordinating award documentation and approval processes with the PI and research personnel, handling external and regulatory audits, and answering questions and providing information to sponsors and Metis research personnel in a prompt and accurate fashion. The Metis Foundation performs these duties and responsibilities in order to ensure appropriate spending of federal funds, maintain good relations with sponsors and military researchers, and to be viewed by military researchers as facilitating the progress of the research project.
