Guiding submissions, negotiations, awards so your research is supported
Tips from Vince – Tip 1 Be sure that you are set up on Cayuse, Fastlane and eCommons. Do this well in advance of even starting to write up your idea. It should be a straightforward process, but if you are time-constrained it is sure to be problematic instead. So hedge your bets and get signed up right away. Here’s the link to a good starting point: http://oregonstate.edu/research/osp/forms http://oregonstate.edu/research/osp/forms
Tips from Vince – Tip 2 Prepare your budget early. When I started my academic career I had a habit of focusing intently on the new idea that I wanted to pitch in response to an RFP and leaving the budget part for later. “Later” usually turned out to be at the last possible minute. And invariably that’s when I’d find out that I did not have the latest data to inform me in preparing a draft budget. So, start early with a good general idea of what the budget will be. Then, when you are past the writing crunch and on to refining the budget, you know you will be starting from a solid set of numbers. An additional idea: Save this template and use it as your starting point for future applications – you can simply scale the personnel, supplies and equipment components to meet the needs of the proposed project, making it more likely that your budget will review well. Here’s a link to a good starting point: http://oregonstate.edu/research/osp/budget- development-0 Many times your Department or business office will have a template they can share with you as a starting point, too. It’s worth asking.http://oregonstate.edu/research/osp/budget- development-0
Tips from Vince – Tip 3 The numbers – make sure you are using current rates. It’s frustrating to invest time and energy in preparing what seems to be a rock solid budget, only to have it reviewed and learn that the rates you used were not current. So, visit the OSP website early in the process (when you make that DRAFT BUDGET) to plug in the right values. Here’s a link to a good starting point: http://oregonstate.edu/research/osp/sites/default/files/c urrent_rates_fy14.pdf http://oregonstate.edu/research/osp/sites/default/files/c urrent_rates_fy14.pdf
Tips from Vince – Tip 4 Don’t be afraid to ask for help – just ask EARLY. Finding the right person to ask is pretty straightforward – start with your senior colleagues. Your colleagues are a great resource for “intelligence” on funding agencies, opportunities, and budget preparation. Getting together with a colleague for a discussion – over coffee or tea, or while taking a walk around campus, can be tremendously helpful. For budget preparation, a good first question is “Can you share with me an example budget for [name the funding organization] that I could use as a starting point?” Armed with that, you are more likely to be successful in assembling a budget.
Tips from Vince – Tip 5 To review your budget, work with your business center [or College Grant Coordinator] first.
Tips from Vince – Tip 6 When you are close to being ready to submit – ideally a couple of weeks prior to the deadline (go ahead, groan now, I know the feeling) – “punch the button” to trigger the OSP review. Recognize that OSP may be able to work with only a very rough draft of the technical part of the proposal (so long as it is a good match for the budget piece) and your best effort, using current rates, for the budget. By now, that part will have been reviewed by your business center, so it’s likely to be in reasonably good shape. Here’s a link to the OSP org chart, to guide you as to whom in OSP is your best point of contact: http://oregonstate.edu/research/osp/sites/default/files/osp_fu nctional_structure_0.pptx http://oregonstate.edu/research/osp/sites/default/files/osp_fu nctional_structure_0.pptx
Tips from Vince – Tip 7 Recognize that the person on the other end of the phone, or responding to your email, is also helping lots of other people with needs as dire as your own. They’ll be much more inclined to jump on your problem if it’s clear that you have done your part fully.
