Notes:

1) In the PI’s initial email to Sean (one month prior to due date):

· Identify the NSF solicitation title and/or number (avoid only using acronyms, as this can get confusing).

· If it is a collaborative proposal, list the lead organization.

· Identify if IU is a subcontract to another university/organization, and provide contact information for submitting our proposal.

· If subcontract(s) are to be included in the IU budget, include the emails of key personnel from those organizations.

· Include the proposal title, or at least a working title.

· Provide the start and end dates of the project.

· Identify if the project is international in nature, and note this includes planned international travel.

· Identify any research risks (human subjects, animal use, biohazard materials, recombinant DNA) and if yes, provide status (pending, not yet submitted, or protocol number)

· If proprietary/privileged information is included (on the proposal, not the project data)

· If inventions will be conceived or reduced to practice during the course of work under this project

· Provide as much of the budget outline as possible, which Sean will incorporate into an Excel worksheet as the first budget draft.

· Let Ed Gentry know what kind of help you might like in grant writing and discuss deadlines.

2) Work with Sean to develop budget and finalize by 2 weeks before proposal

3) To be uploaded by Sean to Fasltlane for ORA 5 days in advance of deadline; Ed will set up Box folders that will include subfolders for various materials so PI can use this as a working document. This can be set up earlier—just ask Ed.
