How can I let my grant administrator know of a grant that I intend to submit?
One easy way to let your grant administrator know of a new grant you intend to submit is to fill out our online proposal notification form.
If you prefer, you can email your grant administrator the important information: WSU PI, WSU Co-PIs (if applicable), lead institution (WSU or other), funding agency, deadline/due date, RFP title, RFP link or pdf, anticipated project duration, and anticipated start date (for budget purposes).
What process should I expect in working on a proposal (pre-award) with a unit grant administrator?
If WSU is a subcontractor on a grant, what questions should I ask my counterpart at the lead institution so that I can get my subcontract?
Please ask your counterpart at the lead institution to get in contact with their central grants office to let them know a subcontract is needed.
You can put your grant administrator in contact with their grant administrator to find out what information they need from us and what forms they require us to fill out. Usually we need a budget, scope of work, and a subcontract initiation form filled in.
For account setup, please email award notice as soon as received to your grants administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. If account set-up is time-sensitive (i.e. if you plan to pay staff from the funds, then please indicate this to your grant administrator, so that they can request a “rush” setup from Sponsored Program Services (SPS).
