WSU External Support Climbs to $31 Million

WSU faculty and staff have proven once again that they have the "right stuff" when it comes to competing for external support. A 20% increase in sponsored programs funding from 1995-96, to a record $31,336,991 for the 1996-97 fiscal year, is a sure sign that WSU can successfully compete with the best.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs facilitated the submission of 720 applications (up from 651 in 1995-96) for a record volume of $48,810,008 (vs. $43,904,877 in 1995-96). WSU accepted 535 awards, a 17% increase from last fiscal year.

Over the last decade, WSU's external funding has steadily and dramatically increased (see graph).

WSU receives nearly one-half of its funding from federal sponsors. The National Institutes of Health are the major federal grantor, followed by the Department of Defense, Department of Education, other Department of Health and Human Services sponsors (e.g., Bureau of Health Professions) and the National Science Foundation. State agencies provide 30% of WSU support, 12% comes from industries, and the balance of funding is supplied by other educational institutions (4%), non-profits (2%) and local agencies (2%).

Notes from the Director

I have signed Wright State up to participate in a nationwide initiative called "Electronic Approval and Routing Systems" or "EARS." The objective of this project is to investigate, design, develop, test and distribute alternative solutions for an electronic research administration system module to do institutional routing and approval of contract and grant proposals and other research-related documents. Once developed, it is expected that these solutions will be disseminated free of charge throughout the research administration community.

The EARS project will be coordinated by a Task Force under the auspices of the Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP). This sponsorship permits the work conducted to be done in close coordination with the other electronic research developments now taking place through the FDP. It also provides an avenue for the active participation of federal agencies in the project, and uses the FDP meeting and task force model to provide structure, reporting, and guidance to the project. The Task Force includes 90 universities, non-profit organizations and federal agencies - including Wright State, the University of Cincinnati, Kent State University, Bowling Green University and the Medical College of Ohio.

This project will be conducted in four major phases, as follows:

Phase 1: Inquiry
Phase 2: Construction
Phase 3: Testing and Evaluation
Phase 4: Dissemination

with Phase 3 expected to be completed by November 1, 1999.

This is an exciting opportunity for the increasing number of faculty who produce proposals already in electronic form, but who must then print them out in hard copy to route through the department, school/college and RSP. Of course, we will still maintain our hard-copy routing system for those who prefer it (unless a particular sponsor requires the proposal to be submitted electronically). I hope to receive faculty support for this project, and I welcome comments and recommendations.

RSP Staff News


RSP welcomes to our office two faces familiar to the WSU community: Glen Jones, formerly WSU's Manager of Cost Studies and Restricted Accounting, located in Financial Services, has joined RSP as an Assistant Director, effective September 2. Glen will assume many of the post-award responsibilities formerly handled by Lori Gabriel. In addition, he will soon be charged with the human subjects compliance area, currently the bailiwick of Gene Hern. Gene will be freed to concentrate on pre-award duties and will maintain control over the animal subjects and biosafety compliance arenas. Silohetted people graphic.

Marianne Shreck, formerly of Financial Services, has also joined the RSP family. Marianne handles the restricted accounts billing, and her move to RSP is a logical extension of the services provided in our office.

We are also pleased to announce that Jackie Frederick in RSP has been promoted to Grants Management Specialist. This title is more reflective of her responsibilities as a post-award administrator. Jackie and Marianne Shreck will work closely together to monitor expenses and facilitate the collection of outstanding bills in preparation for close-out.

If you have any questions about the roles of the RSP staff, please contact us at ext. 2425.

For Your Information

Buckeye Browsing

Searching for Ohio-based sponsors has just become easier. RSP has purchased a copy of the Ohio Grants Guide 1997/1998, published in cooperation with The Ohio Association of Nonprofit Organizations, and it is available for faculty to peruse in our office (122 Allyn). Magnifying glass graphic. Ohio graphic.

The Guide includes over 900 pages of easy-to-read information including:

· over 800 profiles on Ohio's major sponsors;

· comprehensive details on areas of interest, amount of Ohio giving, application procedures, etc.; and

· a "Tools" section with strategies, tips and "how tos" from successful grantwriters.

Should you be interested in taking a look at this valuable resource, please contact Jan Power or Ellen Reinsch Friese at RSP, ext. 2425.

DoD Opportunities

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) offers faculty another source of funds for contracting opportunities; the challenge for WSU has been identifying those opportunities in a timely manner. Oftentimes, once notices have been published in the Commerce Business Daily (which RSP monitors), others "in the know" have gotten a head start on their responses. Signpost graphic.

To "get in the loop," RSP has registered for the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) database. The DTIC database provides WSU with an opportunity to search electronically for projects that have already been funded, to get a flavor for what DoD is interested in supporting.

Taking that one step further, Mr. Bill Whalen of DTIC has offered to visit with selected faculty on campus (in a small group format) to discuss with them future DoD funding trends. He asks that these small groups be composed of faculty researchers who are truly committed to requesting DoD support.

Should you be interested in participating in a DTIC workshop, please contact Bill Sellers at ext. 2425. Eagle graphic.

November 20 Proposal Writing Workshop Scheduled Classroom graphic.

The Research Council and RSP are pleased to announce that Dr. Robert Lucas, the Director of the Institute for Scholarly Productivity, will conduct a Proposal Writing Workshop for WSU faculty on Thursday, November 20. A nationally known research administrator, teacher and writer, Dr. Lucas makes his fourth appearance on campus to share with faculty his insights about the proposal process, including:

· Selecting a sponsor
· Determining what is fundable
· Overcoming writing blocks
· Knowing what to say
· Knowing where to get help

The workshop will accommodate a maximum of 30 participants and a competition for those 30 spaces will be held in October. The workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Student Union W169 B&C. Look for a campus-wide announcement in October or call Ellen Reinsch Friese at RSP, ext. 2425, if you have questions.

Glad You Asked . . .

. . . a column addressing questions commonly asked of RSP staff by faculty submitting proposals. Student graphic.

What is "cost sharing" and why is it so important?

As the name implies, "cost sharing" is the sharing of the costs of a project by two or more organizations, typically the funding agency and the Principal Investigator's (PI's) institution. Some sponsors give preference to institutions that will share the cost of the project; other sponsors require this sharing. Mandatory cost-sharing commitments must be documented. Typically, faculty time is donated to meet this requirement (with the approval of the PI's chair and dean); these efforts are documented on the quarterly A-21 effort reports. Other kinds of cost sharing may require the establishment of a separate account into which funds will be deposited and expended in support of the project.

Is it acceptable to budget the salaries of administrative and clerical staff on federal grants?

Yes, if the costs can be explicitly included in the proposal budget and the individuals involved can be specifically identified with the project. OMB Circular A-21 allows these costs in the cases of

  • large, complex programs;
  • projects which involve extensive data accumulation, analysis and entry, searching literature and reporting;
  • projects that require making travel and meeting arrangements for large numbers of people, etc.

Agency approval of the line item(s) can be assumed if the salary of administrative or clerical staff is budgeted and it is not specifically denied in the notice of grant award or in any related correspondence from the sponsor to the awardee institution.

Research Challenge Early Start/Augmentation Applications Due October 24

The Research Challenge Early Start/Augmentation Grant program offers funding to support and improve the effectiveness of basic or applied research programs supported by external sponsors. In addition, "augmentation" may also include support for the pursuit of promising related new directions for an existing project.

Who is eligible to apply?

Fully affiliated WSU faculty who have:

· submitted a basic or applied research proposal through RSP to an external agency
· between April 1, 1997 and September 30, 1997 (regardless of deadline date)
· with a total first year sponsor cost of at least $30,000
· on which the faculty member is the Principal Investigator.

· may not exceed 25% of the total cost of the first year of the submitted proposal or $50,000, whichever is less.

Due date

·Two copies of the application are due in RSP (122 Allyn Hall) on or before October 24, 1997.

Additional information

·questions should be directed to Bill Sellers, Director, RSP, ext. 2425.

· guidelines are available on the RSP home page:


Send your questions to: "Glad You Asked," Editor, Research News, 122 Allyn Hall. We'll be happy to publish your question and the response in an upcoming issue of Research News.


Cartoon man thinking.

Low levels of participation in the sponsor/PI matching program, SMARTS, have led us to discontinue our subscription effective September 30, 1997. The companion program, SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) will still be available to faculty, who may access it through the RSP home page.

SPIN, for those new to campus, is an electronic funding database (available to faculty whose e-mail address includes "wright.edu" and who have access to Netscape) providing access to thousands of sponsors and funding opportunities. The search criteria can be manipulated in numerous ways to fit specific needs and interests.

For those who still want to receive automated e-mailed funding opportunities (similar to the service provided by SMARTS), the Community of Science (to which WSU subscribes) will soon be offering its "Alert" service to our campus. As a reminder, Community of Science also provides a mechanism for conducting funding searches, and is linked through the RSP home page. We also invite you to try "Grant Advisor Plus," yet another tool available on the RSP home page to browse, search and download funding opportunities.

Please contact Ellen Reinsch Friese at ext. 2425 if you have any questions about these services or would like to receive a demonstration.

Sponsor Alerts

Out with the Old,

In with the New

The old familiar turquoise application packet (NSF 95-27) from the National Science Foundation has been replaced with the new and improved maroon Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) and Proposal Forms Kit (NSF 98-2) to be used for proposal submissions effective:

October 1, 1997

The new documents incorporate the revised NSF merit review criteria and provide updates to make the GPG consistent with current NSF policies, practices and procedures. RSP has a supply of the new packets in 122 Allyn Hall. The complete text of the GPG, as well as other NSF policy documents, are available electronically on NSF's home page at www.nsf.gov. The Proposal Forms Kit can be downloaded from the NSF home page in both Microsoft Word and HTML formats.

ERA . . . We've Come a Long Way

Graphic of man at a computer.

We're not talking Equal Rights Amendment here, or "Earned Run Average." In the jargon of this profession, ERA stands for Electronic Research Administration, and sponsors have begun to respond to the electronic age by requiring some proposal submissions via the Internet. Notably, in the last few months, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has required submission of certain proposals by means of its FastLane project. Approximately twenty WSU faculty have registered for the FastLane, which was begun as an interactive electronic interface so that faculty could check the status of their proposals through the NSF home page. The evolution of FastLane to allow principal investigators to create their proposals and the accompanying forms and even submit final technical reports electronically has paved the way for other sponsors. See the following article on the National Institutes of Health's efforts.

With a few FastLane proposals under our belts, RSP is poised to assist faculty in this new endeavor. For information regarding the FastLane, contact RSP at ext. 2425 or visit the NSF home page at: www.nsf.gov.

Post-Award NEWS

Most Expenditure Reviews Left to Departments

Just a reminder - beginning September 1, 1997, RSP will only be reviewing grant/contract expenditures of $1,000 and over - unless the expenditure involves:

·purchased services,
·travel, or

Invoice document graphic.

Therefore, any expenditure document with an object code in the 1000, 4000 or 9000 range of object codes must continue to be reviewed by RSP regardless of the amount. Any others for less than $1,000 can be sent directly to the appropriate department for processing after the proper approvals have been obtained.

This new procedure does not change the University's responsibility to ensure that no one person has complete control over any one transaction. The University must also see to it that expenditures on extramural awards are allowable, reasonable, and benefit the work under the award. Therefore, it is imperative that every grant/contract expenditure be reviewed and approved by more than one individual.

To ensure compliance regarding internal controls on grants/contracts, we are requesting that all expenditure documents contain at least two signatures. A clarifying memo will be distributed to Deans, Directors and Department Heads. For questions regarding these new procedures, please call either Glen Jones or Jackie Frederick at ext. 2425.

NIH Rides the Wave Toward ERA

The National Institutes of Health has begun its transition from paper to electronic exchange of information. As a first step, NIH's Notice of Grant Award (NGA) will be reformatted as an award letter (from its current "form" look) effective October 1, 1997. The next step is electronic transmission of the award letters, expected to be in place by the end of the calendar year 1998.


The grants and contracts on these pages were awarded from May 1997 thorugh August 1997.

WSU's facility and administrative "F&A" cost rates (formerly known as "indirect costs") for "Organized Research," both on and off campus, will remain at 44% and 25% respectively, through June 30, 1999. In addition, the rates for "Other Sponsored Activities" have decreased to 28% for projects conducted on campus (down from 39%) and 20% for off-campus projects (down from 31%) in the previous negotiation agreement.

An Invitation

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) invites new faculty and those just getting started in research to an orientation seminar that will introduce the various services available in our office. The seminar will be held on Tuesday, October 21, 8:30 to 11:00 a.m. in E156 A&B Student Union.

This seminar will answer these questions:

  • How do I locate external funding opportunities?
  • What Federal and University regulations affect my proposal?
  • What must I know about administering external funds?
  • Does the University have funds for research and scholarly projects?
  • How will RSP help?

In addition, RSP staff will demonstrate how their computerized database can be used to match faculty research interests with potential funding sources and, if desired, with WSU collaborators who share these interests. Your name and interest keywords will be added to the database at your request.

If you plan to attend the seminar, please contact Jan Power (Ext. 2425) by Wednesday, October 15.

"Wright Laboratory" Name Just Another Memory

Reorganization efforts at the Air Force have led to the renaming and restructuring of Wright Laboratory. The former Wright Laboratory, Armstrong Laboratory, Phillips Laboratory, Rome Laboratory, and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research have been combined into a new organization called the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). The new AFRL structure creates nine technical directorates; new directorates at Wright Patterson Air Force Base (Wright-Pat) are Materials & Manufacturing, Human Effectiveness, Propulsion, Sensors, and Air Vehicles. The administrative functions of the labs are combined under one office at AFMC headquarters at Wright-Pat. Graphic of plane as a molecule.

Major General Richard R. Paul is the new commander of AFRL; he is also the Air Force's technology executive officer, overseeing planning efforts for basic research to ensure continued technological superiority.

While the name, "Wright Laboratory," has been relegated to history, the 80-year-old core missions (avionics, aerodynamics, propulsion and materials) will live on.
