A grant is a federal award for a federally funded research project. All grants to the University of Wisconsin, including grants for faculty, staff, and students, must be submitted electronically. The UW General Funding Agreement (GFAs) requires each grantee to include a request for proposal (RFP) in a file submitted to the State of Wisconsin as part of the General Funds section of the online State of Wisconsin budget portal, the UW System Budget Portal. If an RFP is available, the project applicant is to receive the RFP electronically in order to be considered for the grant. The information requested by the RFP includes;
the title, year of award, and purpose of the research;
the proposed scope and budget of the research;
a description of the proposed scope and budget requirements, including an estimate of the expected benefits to the University’s research and the expected costs of delivering the required benefits;
the proposed budget proposal to deliver the proposed research;
the proposed amount of funding, if any;
a statement of the rationale for each proposed scope and budget requirement for the proposed research;
a description of the proposed method and resources for performing the proposed research; and,
a statement of the proposed cost of delivering the proposed research in dollars.
RFPs are a tool that the UW System uses to encourage proposals for research. The University of Wisconsin will not accept a UW System grant that is not in the RFP submitted in the General Fund of the UW System Budget Linked Service.
The RFP will address a specific topic, including a grant program to investigate, evaluate, and disseminate knowledge and information concerning the effects of exposure to hazardous chemicals on human health and biological systems, including the health of wildlife, public health, and the environment as well as its impacts on research and public health. In accordance with the GFAs, the requested project must be approved by, and the project must be coordinated to, an official scientific committee of the UW System through appointment of the university’s Director of Developmental Sciences, who will establish the project scope and budget parameters as well as recommend a research plan to the University of Wisconsin System Director of Developmental Sciences.
What if the proposal is not approved?
If there is any doubt about the project’s scientific merit and the proposal is not supported by the required information and evidence, the proposed project may be withdrawn from consideration for funding. There are no procedures for withdrawing a proposed research study. If a study is withdrawn
