October 30, 2019 - The Nuts & Bolts of Proposal Preparation and Award Management

The most successful outcomes during proposal preparation and award administration processes involve solid partnerships and many individuals—the principal investigator, Research Foundation and SJSU staff—working closely together to meet sponsoring agency deadlines and all requirements.

This workshop focused on the collaborative processes that help facilitate successful outcomes during all phases of the research project life cycle including proposal planning and development, award negotiation, award management, and project closeout.
