Pre Award and Post Award Assistance with Proposals and/or Grants

The ORD supports pre and post award research efforts at the university by promoting the development, implementation, and coordination of sponsored research. ORD works with Project Investigators (PIs) and Project Directors (PDs) to identify potential funding sources and develop and submit proposals to funding agencies, making sure that research is compliant with sponsor guidelines and university policies. ORD also negotiates terms and conditions of awards, contracts, and amendments and develops subawards/subcontracts for collaborative arrangements with non-ISU agencies and non-ISU consultants. While the PI/PD manages their grant, ORD will assist with extensions, changes of PIs, and ISU Grants and Contracts Accounting staff will provide assistance with purchasing, travel, accounts payable, project payroll, sponsor billing, and financial reporting.
