Pre-Award

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

Proposal Toolkit

ORSP has put together a Proposal Toolkit to assist with proposal preparation and submission.  Here are links to information and documents that can help answer some common questions and provide guidance related to submission of a proposal through Cal State East Bay.  For additional assistance, please contact proposals@csueastbay.edu.

 

Proposal FAQ's

Contact chantal.ebarle@csueastbay.edu to get access to Pivot, an online funding database and search tool.  If you are interested in private sources, contact susan.wageman@csueastbay.edu.  You can also access other sources through a list of funding sources and other databases.

All submissions to external sponsors require university review and approval.   If you are not sure, contact proposals@csueastbay.edu.  Provide the name of the sponsor, the program name, the deadline, and a link to the funding guidelines or sponsor's page.  

For faculty, you will need to inform your chair and dean.  For senior staff (Managers, AVP's, VP's), ensure your supervisor is aware.  All proposals need to be reviewed by ORSP then routed (via our Cayuse system) to your chair/dean (or supervisor), the CFO, and the AVP of Research and Sponsored Programs.  Additional approvals may apply.

We strongly advise you email proposals@csueastbay.edu or submit a Cayuse entry at least 30 days (or earlier) prior to the proposal submission deadline.
