Submission and Award Acceptance
Our Office is here to assist you with all of your submissions and award acceptance needs. Below is a brief list of steps as to how our office assists you when applying for funding. Please note this list is not comprehensive and other services may be provided upon request.
- Identify Funding Opportunities via one of our funding databases
- Assist with proposal development, budget, and budget justification
- Ensure compliance with sponsor guidelines, University policies, and federal and state government regulations prior to submission
- Approve and submit proposals to sponsors as authorized by the University
- Negotiate and accept awards on behalf of the University
- Authorize Grants Accounting to establish the grant/contract account providing access to awarded funds.
*Please note, after accepting an award, the Grants Accounting team manages all post-award functions. ORCA may assist with rebudgeting, or the processing of new subawards, but all other post-award responsibilities transition to the Grants Accounting team at this step. Please review the non-financial assistance document for clarification.
