REACT support from ORC Research Development Team

A unique approach to supporting large, complex proposal submissions.

R:  The Research Development team promises to rapidly Respond to investigator needs by immediately making ourselves available and beginning the research support process.

E:  The Research Development team can Evaluate needs and available assets based on agency/RFP guidelines, existing infrastructure, collaboration requirements, and special requests (such as samples from the proposal library or FOIA requests and templates created for the specific announcement/agency).

A:  The Research Development team can Assist with proposal components and coordinate efforts with the C&G team and College/Institute Administrators. Research Development can help prepare non-technical components of the proposal such as Facilities Equipment & Other Resources, Current & Pending Support, Letters of Collaboration, Biographical Sketches, Collaborators & Other Affiliations, research timeline tables, and perform searches for UCF facts and demographics/enrollment data.  We can point to on-line materials that support the proposal preparation.

C:  The Research Development team can Coordinate the proposal progress through meeting/communication assistance, identification and connection with collaborators/partners, document management, review coordination (editorial review, technical peer review), proposal progress scheduling, and follow-ups with collaborators.

T:  The Research Development team can Track proposals through the stages of revision and finalization, and can provide post-submission evaluation.
