This page contains information on the research administration activities of the UW Bothell Office of Research. 


Research-lifecycle: Plan/Propose/Setup/Manage/CloseoutGrant Lifecycle

The Lifecycle represents all activities typically involved in a research project. The activities may be programmatic (scientific) or administrative in nature, or both. They begin with forming a hypothesis or research question; conclude with final financial reports and scientific publications.

Plan/ProposeGrant life cycle with Plan/Propose highlighted

The Plan/Propose stage begins with forming a hypothesis or research question. It includes identifying a sponsor (whether externally-funded or internally supported), and developing and submitting a proposal.

""Find Grant Funding:

Selecting a funding source involves finding a sponsor with goals that align with a given research project, or finding an opportunity for which a PI or team would be eligible to pursue.

Submit Proposal

Finished grant work and the eGC1s are due to OSP (3 business days before grant deadline, usually at 5pm). PIs have to complete their FIDS electronically (Financial Information Disclosure System), then the proposal/eGC1 is ready to be approved by leadership/supervisors and sent to OSP to route.

Required Grants Management for Investigators Training

Formerly Faculty Grants Management Training . This training provides an overview of the grants management process, from preparation of proposals to fiscal report preparation through final audit. As of July 1, 2020, classes are provided by a live Zoom class for the initial training, and then an online refresher should be completed every four years. Learn more about the class.
Training is now required (July 2020) at the time of the PI's first proposal in SAGE, which is different from the former requirement when training was required at the time of the first award.

SetupResearch-lifecycle with setup highlighted

The Setup stage begins with receiving an award (congratulations!) or, if not externally funded, securing internal approval and resources. It involves preparing the project for launch, including confirming that all compliance requirements are met, and making final arrangements for resources and facilities, and for collaborations.

Kick-off Meeting

Once awarded, the Office of Research will contact you to hold a kick-off meeting. Leena Perera works with UW faculty and staff, and Sarah Verlinde-Azofeifa works with research centers.

ManageResearch-lifecycle with manage highlighted

The Manage stage begins when all initial compliance requirements have been met and all scientific/programmatic preparations have been made. It comprises the entire time the research project is being conducted and includes all scientific activities as well as the supporting administration. It ends when data have been collected and analyzed and the project period has ended.

Fiscal Management

Now that you have won an award, how do you budget, manage, and spend the funds?
