CHASS Research Policies and Procedures

CHASS Proposal Incentive (CHP In) Policy

CHASS Proposal Preparation Help

Timeline: Minimum 12 days before proposal is due to agency    

  • The Request for Proposal (RFP) states date application is due to the agency.
  • Office of Research and Economic Development needs 3 days (standard) or 7 days (non-standard) to review prior to this date.
  • C&G Manager needs a minimum of 5 days before that to put your materials into a Grants.gov or Fastlane application and produce an electronic Campus Approval Form (eCAF).

What can the CHASS Contract and Grant Manager do for you?:

  • Review RFP
  • Look for agency requirements (i.e. font size, margin size, CV length, Project Summary or Abstract, etc.)
  • Review narrative, abstract, etc. for spelling errors, missing words, grammar, etc.
  • Fill out applications Grants.gov, Fastlane, other agencies (with your passwords, if provided)
  • Create budget and budget narrative, if necessary

I found a funding opportunity, now what?

  • Contact me
  • With the RFP, we discuss the timeline.
  • I complete eCAF.
  • You work on narrative, abstract, project docs.
  • I work on budget, with input from you.  The narrative will drive the budget and the budget will drive the narrative.  We should be in contact as soon as you think you will submit.
  • I complete the agency’s application (if you wish).
  • Application, with project docs, is attached to eCAF.
  • eCAF routed to PI, Co-PIs (if applicable), Chair(s), Dean (if applicable), to Office of Research and Economic Development (RED).
  • RED submits your application unless:
    • RED will allow you to submit if agency needs hard copies; but we have to wait for their review and approval.  
  • Cover letters – some agencies require signed cover letters from RED; especially with hard copy applications.  I can coordinate.
