The Office of Grants and Contracts (OGC) maintains a database of all proposals submitted each fiscal year. Each proposal is identified with a four (4)-digit “OGC Proposal Number.” The database includes the following information:
- Principal Investigator (PI)
- PI’s Department/College
- Funding Agency/Sponsor
- Type of Agency (Federal, State, Private, etc.)
- Solicitation/Program Name (if available)
- Proposal/Project Title
- Funding Requested
- Proposed Project Period
- Funding Status
Funding Status can be “Pending” or “Unsuccessful,” or "Active."
In general, OGC receives notifications of awards or “regrets” from the funding agency/sponsor. OGC will notify the PI upon receiving notification from the sponsor. In any case, OGC will contact either the PI or the sponsor about the status of a proposal nine (9) months after a proposal has been submitted or around the time awards are expected to be issued by the sponsor, per Proposal Guideline/RFP.
