Large Proposal Development Services
Need help managing and writing a proposal of more than $1,000,000? The Office of Research Advancement and Partnerships (ORAP) proposal managers can assist you with:
- Careful reading and re-reading of the request for proposals
ORAP staff will make sure your proposal is responsive and conforms to all specific instructions and requirements.
- Meeting coordination
Proposal managers can help project collaborators maintain communication and keep proposal development on track by setting up conference calls (audio or video) and/or in-person meetings.
- Regular check-ins with the PI
Keeping momentum on a proposal can sometimes be a challenge. The ORAP team provides check-ins to hear how things are going, ensure coordination of effort, and develop to-do lists.
- Assistance with timelines
Proposals managers will help you stay organized. They can help ensure all proposal components, including documents required from collaborating partners, are prepared, reviewed and revised as needed, and ready for on-time submission.
- Developing templates/models
Proposal managers assist collaborating partners in the preparation of their proposal pieces, and enhance the cohesiveness and appearance of the final product.
ORAP staff will help compile and integrate collaborator input, strengthen narrative organization and project presentation, and ensure all RFP guidelines are followed.
- Communicating with subcontractors
ORAP staff will serve as point of contact or liaison regarding questions of proposal logistics, and for collection of documents from collaborating partners.
- Budget support
The proposal managers help coordinate preparation of the WSU budget and budget justification, as well as subcontractor budgets and budget justifications.
- Special needs of proposal
ORAP staff provide assistance with other required and optional proposal components as needed.
