Proposal Creation Proposal (called “V101”) is created with the following data: ▫Institutional and personnel data ▫One or more project descriptions ▫Preliminary budget data ▫Compliance information Standard information about the campus, the sponsor, and departments and personnel involved in the proposal is captured from templates called “profiles,” maintained by the central grants office on each campus Each project within the proposal may have its own budget, with multiple budget periods Additional information can be tracked for the submission, such as sub-recipients, federal flow through, conflicts of interest, intellectual property and previous awards Proposal is assigned a Proposal ID by the system 16
Proposal Projects Each proposal is required to have at least one project. The project is used to track the fiscal part of the proposal and/or award. The project can be used to differentiate scope of work and/or budgets among multiple projects contained in a single proposal. Each project can have only one Department and one F&A base and rate. F&A distribution may be defined for the V101 proposal, but must be defined before the FINAL proposal award is generated. If applicable, decentralized offices will input this data. This information must be completed for each project on the proposal. 17
