When to Contact GSS
Please contact your GSS grants coordinator before sending anything to a sponsor. Even if your submission is simply a letter of intent that does not include a detailed budget (which is the only case in which a principal investigator can send out any sort of funding request without GSS or OSP processing), we may have useful suggestions to save time with administrative processing.
Please note that if you are applying to a foundation, corporation or other non-Federal, private sponsor, the Development Office will need to be contacted before sending the proposal to the sponsor. Your GSS grants coordinator will make this contact for you after receiving your proposal. Development must be contacted to coordinate submissions.
