Proposal Process Overview

Proposal Process Overview

The Research Service Centers (RSCs) at UTSA serve as the “front line” pre-award service
units to provide services/support and subject matter expertise for faculty and staff for proposal
(grant, contract, other sponsored project) preparation, packaging, review, and submission. The
RSC staff also provide support with award negotiation (in coordination with the Office of
Contracts & Industry Agreements), preparation and “hand-off” to Post Award Administration
(PAA) and Grants & Contracts Financial Services (GCFS) units for account set-up.

 

UTSA has implemented a 10/5/2 Rule for review and processing of standard proposals.
Some projects, however, may require more lead time such as those that: (1) are significantly
complex and involve many partners, (2) require letters from institutional officials such as the
VPREDKE, Provost or President, (3) require cost-share or match commitments, (4) require a
new PI or institutional account in a “new to us” submission site, and so on. It is always best to
consult the RSC and other REDKE units early in any preparation process to ensure a successful
and timely submission. The RSC staff also work closely with the Proposal Development Team.
