Pre-Award Services

Pre-Award services include:

  • Kick-off meeting with Principal Investigator
  • Budget development
  • Compile grant sections
  • Coordinate with outside institutions for subcontract paperwork
  • Submissions through Cayuse or paper filing as appropriate
  • Submissions of UNC-Chapel Hill subcontracts to other institutions
  • Submissions of RAMSeS proposals
  • Submissions of JIT documentation requests
  • Review biosketches for formatting
  • Assist with annual and final Progress Reports (RPPR and FRPPR)

Timelines for Requests:

  • Grants (12 weeks min)
  • Outgoing Subcontracts (4 weeks min)

UNC Lineberger prefers that a Request for Study Support be submitted at least three months (12 weeks) in advance of the submission due date. Our preference for sub-awards and sub-contracts is that we have a four week lead time. This allows one week, up front, to coordinate services, as well as one week at the end to route proposals through RAMSeS.
