> Subject: Dedicated Grants Development Efforts
> Dear Readers:
> Our research and education Institute is reevaluating its services to
> researchers and professionals in general as they relate to providing
> grantwriting and grant proposal facilitation/coordination services ( a
> potentially separate office from the Sponsored Projects Office) The
> questions on our table are:
> 1) should a centralized dedicated grant development office with a
> small staff be established to coordinate and facilitate grant proposal
> writing for all professionals?
> 2) how can a small staff with diverse backgrounds accommodate the
> needs of all investigators effectively?
> 3) is it best to function in a decentralized manner and hire
> grantwriters with the appropriate expertise and background and
> strategically place these individuals in those departments/programs
> 4) what works --"grantwriters" or "grant facilitators"????
> 4) and many other questions...
> We would like to talk to some institutions who have explored these
> same questions recently. We are a small research institution in terms
> of grants received (3.5mil) and would like to encourage and facilitate
> the growing programs that will require more grant dollars to stay
> afloat. We would appreciate finding out who would be willing to share
> their experience and structure/processes with us. Many thanks.
