Proposal Development Planning Guides/ Checklists

IMPORTANT - The Purpose of the proposal checklists and planning guides found herein are to provide assistance to the Principal Investigator (PI) in developing and writing a proposal for the given Funding Opportunity. These planning guides and checklists are based on the FOA/RFP as dated/described. Please be advised that changes and updates to the funding opportunity proposal requirements can change from one funding cycle to the next, and sometimes within the same funding cycle. Should there be a difference between these planning guides/checklists and the most recent opportunity announcement from the funding agency, the current announcement's requirements should be followed. ORSP will make every effort to keep these guides and checklists consistent with the most current agency requirements. Making sure a proposal is in compliance with the funding agency's specifications is a shared responsibility between the proposal PI and the ORSP. A PI should thoroughly read and follow the funding announcement and seek assistance from ORSP in interpreting proposal requirements as needed.
