Proposal Submission Process

The Pre- Award Process at Bowie State University 

    1. Read the proposal guidelines carefully and provide a completed Notice of Intent form with all the required signatures to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs prior to working on  the proposal. This gives your Chair and Dean the opportunity to approve the proposal and  determine whether  the  project  will  support  the  University's  goals  and  objectives.  Also provide the funding agency's guidelines along with the Notice of Intent to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs before working on the proposal.
    2. 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.

    3. Identify all consultants/subcontractors and cost sharing or matching dollars (if applicable)  at least 2 weeks prior to the agency deadline.

    4. 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.

  1. Allow 48 hours for the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to review the proposal, and if needed, submit a copy of needed corrections to the Principal Investigator (PI). ORSP will approve the proposal and submit the proposal to the funding agency.
