Services

OPD works to provide personalized assistance and guidance throughout the pre-submission phase of proposal development. OPD can assist with large team projects, as well as individual faculty and researchers on a priority basis.

 
Our capabilities include: 
  • The ability to identify, encourage, and coordinate large, long-term, multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary, and/or multi-agency proposal captures.
  • The ability to facilitate networking strategies and partnership initiatives across colleges, departments, research centers, outside academica, industry, local, state, and federal government agencies.
  • The ability to provide detailed support throughout the pre-award phase of proposal development. 
 
Our services include:
  • Oversight, coordination, and review of large-scale, multi-stakeholder proposal captures.
  • Individual assistance and review of singular proposal submissions.
  • Development of schedules and action items which aid in the organization and writing of a proposal's major components.
  • Assistance with editing and critique of all narratives, biographical sketches, content alignment with solicitation requirements, and other required documents.
  • Boilerplate materials, such as institutional language approved for use within proposal narratives, facilities descriptions, best practice recommendations, and other resources – access to boilerplate materials is restricted to UAH personnel through the myUAH portal.
  • Provision of proposal resources designed to aid researchers with writing, editing, and best practices during the development process.
  • Identification and information about funding opportunities and resources that are disseminated to faculty, researchers, and other stakeholders via the Weekly Funding Bulletin.
