Policy on Limited Submissions

Procedure to Follow for
Limited Submissions
November 19, 2009

The University at Albany requires an internal review and selection process for funding opportunities where the program guidelines stipulate a limited number of pre-proposal or proposal submissions. In order to select the best qualified proposal, applicants must follow the University’s Limited Submission Process.

As limited submission funding opportunities are posted to the website, an email will be sent to the appropriate faculty, chair, and or dean/vice president. An internal deadline will be given for interested applicants to submit a one page summary of their anticipated project. If the submission is for a major piece of shared equipment or shared core facilities , a business plan for supporting on-going operations and maintenance is also required.

In cases where the guidelines stipulate a specific number per college/school, the dean/vice president will be asked to coordinate the process within their college/school. When guidelines indicate a limited number per institution, the process will begin at the college/school level. In those cases, a deadline will be given for applicants to submit a one page summary to the dean/vice president. The dean/vice president will then submit recommendations, by a specified deadline, to Dr. James A. Dias, Vice President for Research for final selection in consultation with the relevant vice presidents and deans.
