New Proposal


  • Create as a new proposal with S-number in FRAPROP, and mark the proposal type as "PP" for pre-proposal.
  • If invited later to submit a full proposal, you will use the same S-number created for the pre-proposal and change the proposal type accordingly (NC, etc.).

Supplemental Funding/Award Modifications

  • The first step to take is to verify how the sponsor will handle this request, as all sponsors treat them differently. To do this, contact your OGCA post-award grant and contract analyst that handles the award. Do not automatically create a new proposal S-number in FRAPROP unless it is first verified that this is necessary.

Continuations (Non-competing)

  • Do not create a new proposal and S-number in FRAPROP. When continuation funds are received by the university, a new budget request may be required to be sent to OGCA. OGCA will make changes in the Banner grant module. All data originally entered in Banner proposal module remains the same.
  • Continuations awards are made each funding cycle even though the original proposal/award was for multiple years.
  • A progress report and budget request may be required to be sent to the sponsor each funding cycle. Check with your OGCA post-award analyst to verify.

Renewals/Competing Continuations

  • Renewals should normally follow the instructions for New Proposal above.
  • IF the sponsor considers the renewal an amendment or modification to an existing award, discuss this with your OGCA post-award analyst before creating a new proposal and S-number.

Revisions to a proposal before official award notification 

  • Update the current Banner FRAPROP entry. Do not create a new proposal and S-number in Banner.

Revisions to a proposal after official award notification 

  • Do not update the proposal information in FRAPROP. All data originally entered in the Banner proposal module remains the same. OGCA will make changes in the Banner grants module.

Proposals Involving Multiple MAUs

  • Each MAU should enter their respective piece and budget amount into FRAPROP, and the proposals should be linked (all non-lead portions should be linked to the parent proposal). No entry should reflect the total request for all MAUs. Each MAU should also use its respective F&A rate for their portion. Each MAU will have its own 'S' number.
