ORSP LIST OF SERVICES AND
FOR PROPOSAL SUBMITTAL
1. As soon as you decide to
submit a proposal, please contact the Office of Research
and Sponsored Programs so we can prepare for your needs.
2. Take time, and give us
time. Calculate two to three months for a worthy proposal.
Stuff off the top sometimes makes it; but more often, does
not. The best proposals are thought out clearly, designed in
detail, and follow the requirements of an RFP precisely.
3. The Director is available,
should you wish, to assist on all phases of your project. She
can help you shape and focus your plan as it develops, find
the right sources for your project, and help write and edit.
4. Typing, word processing,
and formatting proposals can be done by this office if we
have your draft 15 working days before the deadline. We
can also assist in creating appendices, charts and graphs,
etc. These processes take time. So, please make sure your
start with number 1 on this list.
5. Printing proposals can be
done by this office on a laser printer; make arrangements
at least 15 days before the deadline. We can handle
proposals written on IBM or Macintosh in most common formats.
If you use special software, our staff will work with you to
print your proposal.
6. Duplicating three copies
of your proposal will be done by this office at our expense.
If the only assistance you need from this office is
duplicating and packaging, we still need your proposal five
working days before the deadline.
7. Packaging and Mailing
will be done by this office, if your proposal is given to us
according to the established deadlines. In all cases, we will
try to accommodate you; however, if you bring in your
materials too late, you may have to mail them yourself. We
will reimburse you for the cost, if it is within reason.
