FAQ

What is the proposal submission process at the UA?

Sponsored proposals are submitted for review and approval through the UA’s electronic research administration system, UAccess Research. Work with your departmental/unit business office for routing and submission of the proposal to Sponsored Projects & Contracting Services (SP&CS). SP&CS will submit the proposal on behalf of the institution. For more information visit the Proposal Submission section of the Research Gateway.

What administrative support is available for the preparation, submission, and management of grant proposals and awards?

The UA provides both distributed and centralized assistance for proposal administration and development. When planning to develop and submit a proposal, please contact your departmental/unit business office for budget, routing, and submission. To enhance the competitiveness of your proposal, consider contacting RDS. RDS staff provide a range of (free) services from consultation regarding fit with solicitation to proposal management, including document review, technical editing, and more.
