New Proposals  Are you thinking about or planning to submit a proposal? Please submit your PI Checklist today http://research.sfsu.edu/applyforgrant/applyforgrant.html


The Route to Successful Grant Submissions See the roadmap at http://research.sfsu.edu/applyforgrant/route.html

External pre-review of federal proposals http://research.sfsu.edu/whatsnew/whatsnew.html#extrev

ORSP will pay for a pre-review of your federal agency proposal, if the narrative section is submitted one month before the proposal is due. If you feel you meet this criterion, please email Dr. Turkkan jturkkan@sfsu.edu a draft proposal narrative one month prior to the submission date. Include in your email names of several federally funded researchers who are working in your topic (ideally, those who you referenced in the narrative).



Current/Active Projects  

Please check the BI tool (https://ids.sfsu.edu/bifinance/) online to review the monthly activity on your projects and confirm that current spending and projected spend-down is in line with your awarded budget.

Contact your Grants Administrator (GA) if you have any questions or are planning any changes to the project (i.e., request to re-budget, request for no-cost extension, etc.). 

Follow agency guidelines when making changes that affect your project. 


Old or Recently-Ended Projects  

Please contact your GA to close out old or recently-ended projects. Be sure to submit all required reports due at the end of a project period.

Let us know if you need to continue or terminate employees on your sponsored project?
