The Pre- Award Process at Bowie State University
Schedule a meeting with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to discuss the proposal deadline, funding agency, required budget/resources, applicable procedures and policies, timelines, and special needs at least 3 weeks in advance of the agency deadline, preferably when you receive the RFP, RFA, or BAA.
Identify all consultants/subcontractors and cost sharing or matching dollars (if applicable) at least 2 weeks prior to the agency deadline.
Gather other support: letters, bio-sketches, and/or resumes 2 weeks prior to the agency deadline.
Submit a complete proposal along with the Application and Proposal Cover Sheet to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at least 5 business days before the agency deadline for review.
Proposal Application Checklist
This list should be used to ensure that all necessary documentation for the Proposal/Project application process is submitted to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs before the application deadline. No late documentation will be accepted (within 48 hours of the due date), and applications with missing supporting documentation will not be reviewed.
Please Note* Principal Investigators, administrative staff and other non-ORSP personnel are not authorized to submit proposals, accept grants, or execute contracts on behalf of the university. Please contact the ORSP with all correspondence regarding any grant, cooperative agreement, contract, or other sponsored project.
