CALS Contracts & Grants Updates
Introducing CALS Contracts & Grants 20 & 5 Policy
A new policy defining the roles of and mutual expectations for PIs and CALS Pre-Award Consultants during the proposal development and submission process was implemented on February 1. During February, CALS Pre-Award Consultants will work with PIs to transition to the new CALS Contracts & Grants Pre-Award Policy - 20 & 5, which will go into effect on March 1, 2019.
The policy is a result of more than six months of discussions, including three meetings with the CALS Research Committee, a presentation at January DDD meeting, and numerous revisions and reworks. The policy along with a brief overview video can be viewed on the CBO website.
