NEWS & UPDATES
Baylor's New Research Administration System (CARA) Goes Live Fall 2023
Please make sure you plan to attend one of Baylor’s CARA training sessions this fall, well before your next external grant proposal is due. Multiple sessions are being offered by OVPR, and you can learn more about CARA and register here for training sessions.
Proposal Development and Submission
Please remember to reach out to our Grants Manager, Alexis Davidson (email@example.com) as soon as you begin to think about an upcoming external proposal submission. Our current OVPR Pre-Award Proposal Development URA is Amy Hoover (firstname.lastname@example.org), and our Post-Award URA is James Faulk (email@example.com). OVPR has outlined the requirements for the 10-5-3 deadlines that must be adhered to for all external grant submissions. If you are a subcontract on an award, or are working with any subcontracts, please remember there will be even earlier scheduling requirements.
