Limited Submissions Policy

Procedure to Follow for Limited Submission

(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. An internal deadline will be given for interested applicants to submit a one page summary of their anticipated project to the Dean of their School/College. 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 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. The dean will then submit recommendations along with the applicants one page summary, by a specified deadline, to Linda Nuzback Dr. James A. Dias, Vice President for Research, will make the final selection in consultation with the relevant dean(s).

*Deans please NOTE: email Limited Submission recommendations and applicant's one page summary to by the deadline indicated
