Proposal Planning

Upon notification, the Grants & Agreements Team (GAT) assigned to the proposal will confirm receipt of the e-mail, assign an internal tracking number for the proposal (PIAF #), add the proposal to SPA's proposal submission calendar, and review the Funding Opportunity Announcement/Request for Proposal

Meeting with your DRA and SPA at the beginning of the proposal development  process will help to ensure that proposals are submitted to the sponsor by the required time frame. Scheduling a brief planning session to review RFP, draft task list, and assign tasks saves duplication of efforts and minimizes last-minute crises.
