Proposals to Private Foundations and Corporations
Beyond the University’s proposal clearance process, specific policies and procedures must be followed when submitting proposals to private funding sources, which include corporations and foundations. These University of Oregon (UO) policies apply to all requests for support, including research, projects, programs, and development activities.
Corporations and private foundations have various expectations and guidelines for how they wish to be approached by an institution as complex as the UO. Many place restrictions on the number of proposals that an institution can submit at any one time. These limited submission opportunities are coordinated through Research and Faculty Development (RFD) http://rfd.uoregon.edu/. Other foundations require that all communication be coordinated through Foundation Relations.
Foundation Relations serves as a liaison between the University and the University of Oregon Foundation in the submission, management, and reporting of grant awards from some private funding sources.
In order to avoid potential conflicts and improve our chances of securing funding, the Office of Foundation Relations and Corporate Relations Program work closely with Sponsored Projects Services (SPS) and Research Development Services (RDS) to manage the contacts with private funders. Following are special requirements for proposals to private sources:
