The proposal administrators assist researchers with the preparation and submission of proposals for external funding. Services include budget development; completion of most administrative sections of the proposal; and ensuring that the proposal is compliant with A&M System policies, System members’ requirements, state and federal regulations, and the funding agency’s specific terms and conditions. The proposal administrator enters proposal information into MAESTRO where it routes for review and approval to appropriate stakeholders. After review and approval, the proposal administrator submits the proposal to the sponsor and tracks the successful receipt of the proposal.
