Award Lifecycle

There is a wide range of funding opportunities for UM's researchers within the US federal government, as well as through foundations, non-profit institutions, corporations, as well as local and state government.

A proposal is a detailed request for funding prepared in accordance with the sponsor’s instructions. A sponsor can be a federal, state, or local agency, a private foundation, a corporation or other business entity.

As you prepare to submit your proposal to the sponsor, please note that all proposals must be submit to the Office of Research Administration (ORA) prior to submitting to the sponsor.  This section will guide you on when to submit to ORA and what documents are required. 

During the life of an award, there is no substitute for good practices in tracking and reconciling your transactions. Reconciling transactions on a monthly basis is important to grants management.

Upon account closeout, University of Miami researchers are responsible for submitting final technical and invention statements (if required). The Office of Research Administration is responsible for preparing and submitting all financial reports.
