The January 2013 Foundation Tracker Bulletin (PDF) is now available.
Investigators should, if possible, avoid hiring temporary employees to work on sponsored projects, especially in cases where the project work assigned is expected to continue beyond the end of the temporary employment. Such hires result in administrative costs to the University which, by law, cannot be charged to sponsored awards or used as cost-sharing. ORSP, Human Resources and the Office of Budget and Business Services encourage investigators to hire the appropriate type of employee to perform project tasks.
Foundation Tracker Update provides grant seekers with information on open foundation solicitations which have rolling, cyclical, or otherwise, ongoing submission deadlines. The latest edition is available at: Tracker Update 11/28/2012 (PDF)
