Preprint Archives contain unrefereed electronic preprints (eprints) submitted by the authors. Archives are typically organized by subject matter.
Grants must be submitted via OSPA. Please submit at least 2 working days before NSF, NSA, or other deadline. (If you know that you will submit your finished grant to OSPA later than they require, call them in advance—they may be able to accept it later if they are told to be ready for your grant application.) The OSPA no longer uses grant data forms. There is a new process involving PeopleSoft. See http://research.missouri.edu/funding/peoplesoft.htm. The person at OSPA who is in charge of Math Grants is Karen Geren at 884-8985 or email@example.com. (See http://research.missouri.edu/ospa/files/SatelliteAssignments031407.pdf.)
The Office of Research has recently posted a new publication to the Web, Proposal Processing Overview. It includes an overview of preaward grant processes at MU: roles and responsibilities of OSPA, departmental personnel, and PIs; how-to's of budget development; compliance issues; submission to the funder; and negotiation of the award. It is posted at http://research.missouri.edu/policies/files/ospa_PreAward_SOPs.pdf. This manual is provided as a pdf document that can be read with the free Acrobat Reader software. It is designed to be printed as a two-sided, facing page document. This is neither a perfect document nor a static document. We welcome your review and comment for updates and changes.
State F&A Rates
The following state F&A rates have been adopted by the Chief Research Officers (CROs). The rates are derived from the federal rates, with the federal rates being discounted based on appropriation we receive from the state. The CROs have agreed that we should use a single set of state rates System-wide so as to reduce confusion.
Effective date 7/1/03.
The state rates apply to projects funded by state agencies where state funds are used to pay for the project. For projects funded by state agencies with federal flow through money, the federal rates apply.
The Office of Research has posted two publications to the Web.
Both publications are provided as pdf documents that can be read with the free Acrobat Reader software. They are designed to be printed as two-sided, facing page documents. If you or members of your staffs have questions about the Grantsmanship document, please contact Mary Licklider at firstname.lastname@example.org or 884-6438. If there are questions about the Proposal Processing Manual, please contact Mike Quinata at email@example.com or 882-8308.
Mike Greenlief, faculty fellow in the office of research, has put together a web resource so that faculty can get information related to what the National Science Foundation calls "broader impacts". The goal being that when MU faculty put together NSF proposals, or other researchproposals that require outreach, education, diversity initiatives etc., that they can easily be made aware of ongoing activities on campus. Then, through that awareness, and then integration with the ongoing programs, those ongoing activities can be tied to their research proposal. This prevents faculty from having to "reinvent" the wheel to deal with "broader impacts".
The web resource for broader impact activity on campus was recently updated. The listing also includes contact people for the activities. The web pages are listed below:
Please be reminded that a copy of the final form of any and all grant proposals that you submit should be given to Kim in the Math Office for Departmental files.
There are several internal funding grants. We strongly suggest that younger faculty apply for them.
Note that all proposals have to be submitted online. The narative needs to be prepared in MS Word, Wordperfect or PDF format. If you are running UNIX, the PDF format is easily created from latex via the "pdflatex" command. The biographical sketches have to be completed in Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format (RTF). If you are using UNIX in the math department, one suggestion is to download the form in RTF and then use the program OpenOffice.
Please be reminded that a copy of the final form of any and all grant proposals that you submit should be given to Kim in the Math. office for Departmental files.
