More about Developing an Approved Project
The first phase involves submitting a pre-proposal, the results of the Current Research Information Service (CRIS) information retrieval search, and a list of researchers qualified to perform a scientific peer review of the proposed project. All materials for the first phase need to be submitted together. The due date for these documents is typically in early October and is provided in written notification.
Following pre-proposal approval, the second phase involves developing the full proposal and entering project information into the Current Research Information System (CRIS) database. Full proposals are sent to reviewers, and faculty are responsible for revising the proposal based on comments from reviewers and the Research Council. When a new project is approved, the principal investigator (PI) must enter project information into CRIS using forms AD-416, AD-417, and NIFA-2008 to initiate the project.
All of the documents need to be submitted electronically to Charlene Herrick (firstname.lastname@example.org). The PI also needs to give copies of all submitted documents to his or her unit administrator.
