Most proposals, especially to federal agencies, require ORGS involvement, and you should contact your Proposal Administrator I as early as possible.

The Pre-Award team at ORGS will help develop your budget and guide you through the submission process as well as check to ensure that your proposal complies with sponsor guidelines and any other relevant policies and regulations. Many sponsors also require that an Authorized Organizational Representative (or Signing Official) submit your proposal.

Even if the sponsor allows the Principal Investigator (PI) to submit the proposal, if funding will come through the University, ORGS will still need to review the full proposal prior to submission. Submitting without ORGS assistance can result in detrimental budget errors and delays in processing your award.

A collaborative proposal is one in which researchers from two or more institutions wish to collaborate on a unified research project. If TAMUK is the lead institution, our office will require the following subaward information from the collaborative institution:
  • TAMUK Subrecipient Form
  • Scope of Work (SOW)
  • Budget and Budget Justification
  • Letter of Commitment signed by their AOR
  • Any Other Supplementary Documents listed in the solicitation of the Funding Opportunity
It is important to obtain the subaward's grant contact person , so one of our Proposal Development Team members at ORGS can contact them ahead of time and request our required forms, prior to submission.
