Proposal Review

Pre-Award Managers work closely with PIs to ensure proposals meet the highest standard of compliance. Utilizing a set of proposal review checklists, they review each proposal for compliance with the guidelines and policies of the sponsor and UMass Dartmouth. After the initial review Pre-Award Manager will e-mail corrections & suggested changes to the proposal for the PI’s consideration. A final review is completed after all necessary changes are made and the proposal is approved internally.
