About Limited Submission Opportunities (LSOs)
WHAT THEY ARE
Limited submission opportunities (LSOs) are grant opportunities that limit the number or types of applications that can move off-campus and, consequently, require internal coordination. Examples of LSOs are those opportunities that:
- Limit the number of applications that can be submitted either by the institution or a particular department
- Want to ensure unnecessary duplication of requests (usually for instruments)
- Limit applications to one per subcategory
WHO MANAGES LSOs
LSOs are managed by the Limited Submission Program (LSP), within the Research Development Office (RDO). The LSP is responsible for notifying the campus of these opportunities, coordinating the internal selection process, and notification of applicants selected.
For information on limited submission funding opportunities, email: email@example.com.
The LSP has an EVCP-sponsored Advisory Committee charged with establishing policies and procedures for the LSP. At least one member of the LSP Advisory Committee serves on each review committee. Advisory Committee members are:
John Greenspan, Chair, BDS, PhD
Claire Brindis, DPH
Bo Huang, PhD
Ophir Klein, MD, PhD
Jane Koehler, MD
Kathryn Lee, RN, PhD, FAAN
Margaret Tempero, MD
Jonathan Weissman, PhD
- UCSF either receives an invitation from a private foundation to submit nominees or a federal funding opportunity becomes available
- Under the direction of the Chair, Advisory Committee members are contacted in order to identify a Review Committee comprised of faculty best qualified in the specific area of the opportunity to review applications
- The opportunity is announced to the campus via the LSP listserv and applications are invited
- All applications are due by 3pm on the internal due date
- Applications are scored by Review Committee members and a nominee (or designated number of nominees) is (are) invited to move forward with a full application
- While each agency has its own specific requirements for submission, customary Contracts & Grants (C&G) application requirements and deadlines must be followed
Gail Fisher, J.D., M.S.S., Manager, Research Development Office, manages the electronic announcements, coordinates the internal proposal process and reviews, and is the primary contact person for general inquiries about the limited submission process.
