The Pre-Award Team assists investigators with funding source identification, proposal development and submission to sponsors. In addition, they help communicate to investigators any training or other required forms to be completed at the pre-award stage, including but not limited to conflict of interest disclosures and training, subrecipient identification and budgeting, human subjects or use of animals in research, faculty release or additional compensation budgeting, issues surrounding international collaborations, and various other pre-award related issues. They also assist with award approvals and requirements if notification of funding is received.

As a first step, CSUEB Principal Investigators who are planning to submit a proposal for an upcoming deadline will need to refer to these instructions for how to start a proposal in Cayuse
