The first in an occasional series

(ORSP Home)
  • Space:  If a faculty member’s project will require additional space, your Dean must approve this request before the grant proposal is submitted.
  • Fund Advance:  When the faculty member expects a delay in receiving the grant award or contract, a Fund Advance may be requested in order to set up a project number so the spending can begin prior  to receiving the official notice of grant award or the fully executed contract from the sponsor.  To request a Fund Advance, faculty can complete the form at http://www.sfsu.edu/~orspwww/_postaward/_forms/fundadvance.pdf.

    Please note: Fund Advance requests must be reviewed and approved by the Dean.
  • Yes We Will: ORSP will provide faculty with more assistance with research-related administrative tasks when preparing a proposal.  Proposal Specialists will be responsible for preparing and formatting all forms required by the agency, e.g., biosketches, other support, resources, etc.  Specialists will also upload documents to Grants.gov which will allow faculty more time to devote to the development of their research plan.
