Proposal Submittal Process
The Division continues to support the One UND Strategic Plan and its goal to enhance discovery at a level consistent with research intensive universities (Carnegie R1), it is revising and reorganizing the proposal development/submission and award administration processes.
Proposal development/submission and award administration processes are now separated into pre-award and post-award functions. This separation will enable the team members to develop and focus more expertise in specific areas, which will allow them to better serve the faculty and Colleges in the University’s mission to grow research funding.
Proposal Development and Submission
The proposal development/submission process remains a function of the Division of Research & Economic Development. Contact our pre-award staff for assistance.
Functions remaining with the Division include:
- Proposal development
- Proposal review
- Proposal submission
- Notice of award
- Negotiation and execution of awards and sub-awards
Award modifications include:
- Budget modification requests
- No cost extension requests
- Change of principal investigator
Grants & Contracts Administration (Post Award)
Award administration (post-award) in the Grants & Contracts Administration (GCA) office is a part of the Division of Finance & Operations reporting to VP Shivers. The post-award staff operates under VPFO/COO.
Functions now under the Division of Finance & Operations include:
- Award and project set up in PeopleSoft
- Monitoring of Allowable Costs
- Award Invoicing
- Award Reporting (Financial, Property / Equipment, etc.)
- Personnel Activity Confirmation Reporting (Effort Reporting)
- Award and Project Closeout
The Division revised the Transmittal Form to reflect these changes.

We now require all proposals be submitted electronically to vpr.proposals@UND.edu.
For proposal submission, please submit a complete electronic proposal package, inclusive of complete and signed proposal transmittal form, RFP, SOW, budget, budget justification and any other documents required under the RFP.
