Designing, developing and planning studies and demonstration programs—or ideation—is the most marginalized yet critical step to winning funding. Ideas that win sponsor funds:
• Have not been done before -- grants and contracts serve to contribute to knowledge; solve problems or address needs of regional and national importance; propose an approach that builds on lessons learned, established in literature; define a concrete plan with meaningful goals, objectives, milestones, timelines and staff accountabilities; align the plan with SMART outcomes and measures to evaluate impact; demonstrate the applicant team has capacity to execute the proposed plan; share new knowledge or know-how with the broader community; address how the research or program will be sustained beyond sponsor funding; and approach the right funder, whose purpose, method, funding level, etc. align with the project plan.
ORSP staff have developed new services and programs of all sizes across a range of industries and disciplines and can offer consultation around: Internal grant approval; needs assessment, including literature review; program or research plan development ; logic model development; partner or mentor engagement; evaluator, statistician and expert engagement; research compliance, such as the IRB process; budget development, integrating sustainability; funding source identification; sponsor guidelines and past funding analysis; electronic grant application systems; proposal planning and writing; and proposal submission
ORSP provides consultation through:
