Proposal Administration

Every funded research project starts with a proposal to a sponsor. And every proposal that is submitted by The University of Texas at Austin receives a review by a proposal team member along with an endorsement by a member of OSP’s management.

OSP’s proposal team works hard to process thousands of proposals a year (2008-2009: 3,212). Of those proposals, 2,947 grants and contracts were awarded during 2008-2009. In partnership with UT’s research community, our team ensures proposal applications are as administratively correct as can be when compared to sponsor guidelines prior to submission.
