Our Process

We look forward to working with you on your next proposal. We are committed to providing timely services and exceptional support. To improve your chances of success, we will ask a few things from you.

Advance Notice

A typical proposal requires between six weeks and three months to prepare. The more complicated the proposal—large dollar amounts, more PIs, addition of subcontractors—the further in advance you should reach out to us.

Agreements and Approvals

Typically, you will know in advance what kind of support you need from us. We will come to an agreement, with all appropriate approvals, so we can proceed accordingly. We will not receive or take away any research incentive distribution (RID) from your department.
