From the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs - Serving the Research Community of Wright State University

Spring 1997 Vol. 28, No. 3


In This Issue


Focus on Faculty Needs

Facilitating Collaborations

Research and Sponsored Programs convened four focus groups of faculty (representing all colleges and schools and at all career stages, including chairs and deans) in November 1996 to explore the potential incentives and constraints in doing university research. Participants, among whom 75% had received support for external funding, were encouraged to discuss their perceptions of the importance of research at WSU, the challenges they face in writing grant applications and conducting the research once funding has been awarded, and their interest in collaborations (across departmental lines and with other institutions). The input received by faculty was very valuable; the discussion was frank and revealing. It supports the notion that faculty are deeply committed to their roles and responsibilities as teachers, scholars and researchers. While many of the issues raised will take time to sort through, some will be immediately addressed as follows:

Indirect Costs

The issue of indirect costs is one that is often misunderstood and in many cases, poorly communicated. While charging indirect costs will never be warmly received by those who submit grant applications, it is the only way WSU has of recouping the costs of conducting externally sponsored research. These costs include departmental, college and central administration, heat, light, building maintenance and depreciation.

WSU prepares an annual indirect cost proposal that is audited, negotiated and approved by the federal government. Unless otherwise stated in the sponsor's guidelines, RSP will use, when preparing a budget, the actual federally negotiated indirect cost rate in effect on the day a proposal is submitted. The current indirect cost rates (and other important proposal development information) are available on the RSP home page (http://www.wright.edu/rsp/).

Bridging the Funding Gap

Successful grantseekers often find themselves "between grants"; that is, a funding cycle has come to an end, applications are in the review process, there is no current infusion of grant funds, but the research must go on. Research Challenge funds are available to "bridge" this gap in funding, and can be used to support a project in the interim period between funding cycles so long as a new or renewal proposal has been submitted. Please contact Leon Testas at ext. 2425 if you would like further information.

RSP can match WSU faculty with similar research interests using its faculty database. In addition, WSU has joined the Community of Science, which offers access to an extensive "faculty expertise database." Passworded expertise records are currently being created for faculty in the School of Medicine, College of Engineering and Computer Science, and the College of Science and Mathematics. The effort is being coordinated by the University Libraries. This is only the beginning of WSU's involvement in a searchable database that contains the records and research interests of over 85,000 scholars in the U.S. and Canada.

These are but a few of the many topics we will be exploring in future issues of Research News. We value and appreciate very much the time and considerable effort spent by those participants in the focus groups. We would also welcome topics for discussion by other members of the University community.


Notes from the Director

I have been very fortunate recently in having been invited to see first hand some of the research results being generated by Wright State faculty. Dr. Robert Gilkey, Chair of Psychology, asked me to step into his CAVEa three-dimensional synthetic environment that has enormous research potential (e.g., for the study of sensory interaction, display and control design, endoscopic surgery, and complex data visualization). For this particular demonstration, I was able to walk in a meadow, pick a flower, and carry it into a cottage.
On April 29 I attended the Great Lakes Aquatic Ecosystem Research Consortium Colloquium hosted by WSU. This gathering of researchers from around the state featured presentations by Allen Burton, Wayne Carmichael, María González, and Keith Grasman. I was very impressed by the phenomenal breadth of the work being done, which I am sure will help continue to make the Great Lakes ecosystem safer for both animals and people.

Then on May 7 the School of Medicine invited me to participate in an informal discussion with Dr. Donald Vereen of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. I learned a lot about NIDA's research interests and how they might dovetail with what WSU researchers, such as Harvey Siegal, are doing. I was also able to view a related poster session where faculty in SOM, S&M, CONH, and SOPP exhibited some very exciting on-going research activities.

The end of May will find me at the Research Forum being put on by the College of Engineering and Computer Science. There I hope to be able to see what our engineering faculty are doing in such areas as muscle biomechanics and thermodynamics, biomaterials, medical imaging, and medical ultrasound technology. It should prove extremely enlightening.

I appreciate receiving these invitations because it enables me to understand better some of the work that is being supported by the grants and contracts flowing through Research and Sponsored Programs. I hope that the RSP staff and I can continue to broaden this understanding.

RSP Staff News

Happy Trails to Lori Gabriel!

New horizons await RSP's Assistant Director, Lori Gabriel, who will be leaving WSU for a new position as Sponsored Projects Officer in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, at the main campus of Arizona State University. There she will be handling proposals and post-award administration for the Department of Chemical Engineering, Bioengineering and Materials Engineering. She begins her new duties on July 1, 1997.

A graduate of WSU, who earned an M.P.A. from UD in December 1996 while working full-time, Lori has been with WSU for over six years. She has skillfully managed the post-award administration of faculty grants and contracts in RSP since 1993.

We wish Lori the best of luck in her new position at ASU. We are sure that, come winter, she will fully appreciate her new surroundings!

A Salute from the Navy

RSP recently received a letter of thanks from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), complimenting WSU on its efforts in promptly spending ONR funds awarded and billing for completed research. ONR terms this practice "mutually beneficial." We agree!

Online Grant-Writing Hints

The grants world is changing quickly, and we at RSP are the first to admit it! As we come across helpful information in the quest for successful grant applications, especially the "online" variety, we will pass along the URL for you to peruse at your leisure.

For writers of National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants in particular, we recently discovered this site entitled, "Hints for Writing Successful NIH Grants":

http://chroma.med.miami.edu/research/Ellens_how_to.html

While specifically geared to the NIH format, many of the principles apply to grant-writing in general. Happy surfing!

The Internet Working for You

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) are two agencies now offering electronic services to keep you informed of new publications or solicitations.

The NSF offers its "Custom News Service." To set up your profile, visit the NSF home page at:

http://www.nsf.gov

and click on the "Custom News Service" button on the toolbar at the bottom of the home page. You will be prompted to provide your e-mail address and other data to structure your customized alert service.

The ODOD will automatically send electronic reminders of solicitation openings and closings, as well as useful Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) information, if you send your email address, company name and address to:

ohsbir@odod.ohio.gov

Last, but not least, do not forget about WSU's own electronic reminder service, SMARTS (SPIN Matching and Researcher Transmittal System), available as a link through the RSP home page:

http://www.wright.edu/rsp/

Sponsor Acknowledgments

As a reminder, publications that have been derived in whole or part from federal support (federally supported by agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services, National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Education), should acknowledge the support of the sponsor. In some cases, the sponsor will also request that a disclaimer be added to the acknowledgment.

If in doubt about the requirements for acknowledgments from your sponsor, please contact RSP.

The Hallmark of Excellence

The National Science Foundation (NSF) will adopt new criteria for evaluating funding proposals, beginning October 1, 1997. Approved by the National Science Board, the new criteria will make "excellence" the hallmark of the merit review process. Under the new criteria, reviewers will be asked to answer two questions regarding proposals for funding:

· What is the intellectual merit and quality of the proposed activity?

· What are the broader impacts of the proposed activity?

High Risk/High Impact Research

It's the academic Indy 500! The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), a component of the National Institutes of Health, has announced a new, ongoing program that will provide pilot-scale ($70,000 direct costs per year or less; maximum of 2 years) support for potentially ground-breaking ideas, methods or systems that meet all of these criteria:

  • proposed research lacks sufficient preliminary data for feasibility to be established - the "risk";
  • successful demonstration of feasibility would have a major, precedent-setting impact on biomedical research; and
  • research falls within the areas supported by NIGMS (basic research on cell biology, biophysics, genetics, developmental biology, pharmacology, physiology, and biological chemistry).

The program announcement (PA-97-049) can be found on the NIGMS home page at:

http://www.nih.gov/nigms/funding/pa/r21.html

or by calling RSP at ext. 2425.

A Rose by any Other Name

Educational institutions, such as WSU, abide by the principles established by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the determination of costs applicable to Federal grants, contracts and other sponsored agreements. These guidelines are compiled in OMB Circular A-21, "Cost Principles for Educational Institutions."

Last year Circular A-21 was revised to replace the term "indirect" costs with "facilities and administrative" (F&A) costs. F&A costs are synonymous with "indirect" costs and describe more accurately the various cost components of sponsored agreements.

Research and Sponsored Programs has already begun to use the term "F&A" to denote "indirect" costs on communications generated by this office. Effective July 1, 1997, FAS reports will reflect this change in terminology, as well.


F.Y.I.

Looking Ahead to Fall

This is the last issue of Research News for the 1996-97 academic year. The staff of RSP wishes all of you a happy, sunny and restful summer.

Please keep us in mind, though, as the first signs of fall (multi-colored leaves, Monday night football, crowds at the bookstore) become apparent. We plan three University-wide events for the fall quarter:

Faculty Orientation Workshop

We particularly welcome new WSU faculty, but invite any faculty and staff interested in knowing more about RSP and its services, to attend the workshop.

Scheduled for October 21 in E156A & B Student Union from 8:30 A.M. to 11:00 A.M.

Proposal Writing Workshop

Back by popular demand, Dr. Robert Lucas of the Institute for Scholarly Productivity, will offer his wit and wisdom to participants in this proposal writing workshop, scheduled for November 20. Further details will be available in a campus-wide "call for applications" in September.

Ethics in Research Workshop

RSP staff will facilitate an ethics in research workshop, tentatively scheduled for Friday, November 14. Further details will be made available in the fall quarter.


Post-Award NEWS

Buying More Time - At No Cost

Sometimes research or other sponsored projects cannot be completed within the proposed time frame. Investigators may decide to request a no-cost extension.

Sponsoring agencies are willing to grant no-cost extensions because of unforeseen delays in obtaining needed equipment or the hiring of personnel. Simply having a surplus of funds is not sufficient justification for requesting a no-cost extension.

If an investigator needs a no-cost extension, he/she should prepare a written request addressed to their sponsor. This request should include details as to why, in addition to how long, the extension is needed. After the investigator signs this letter, it should be sent to RSP for an institutional signature. RSP will provide the signature and mail the letter to the sponsor. A signed copy will be returned to the investigator for their file.

For projects that allow the university to grant a no-cost extension, the investigator only needs to send a memo to the RSP Director requesting an extension. RSP will notify the sponsor, in writing, that WSU has extended the project.

Using the aforementioned procedures helps to provide consistency in the way no-cost extensions are made. In addition, it allows sponsors to be informed of the specific reasons why projects cannot be completed as proposed.

Please call RSP if you are not sure whether the university can extend your project or if you need to request an extension from your sponsor. You may direct your questions to Lori Gabriel or Jackie Frederick at ext. 2425.

NSF/No Service Faster

National Science Foundation (NSF) award notices are now being received via email. As a result, the award notification period should decrease by a week or more! The notices will be sent to the RSP email address. Please call Lori Gabriel or Jackie Frederick at ext. 2425 if you have any questions.

Restricted Accounts Workshop Gets Rave Reviews

The first restricted accounts training workshop was given on Friday, April 4. This workshop was well-attended by a variety of personnel from many different departments.

The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and the numerous questions and comments both during and after the training were very much appreciated.

If you were unable to attend the workshop, be sure to check the training schedule, distributed by Human Resources, for next fall. (No training will be offered during summer quarter.) If you have any questions or comments regarding this training, please call Lori Gabriel or Jackie Frederick at ext. 2425.

Delivering the Deliverables

Beginning July 1, 1997, RSP will require PIs to submit a copy of the transmittal letter that accompanies their technical reports to our office.

Currently, PIs are reminded of reporting requirements approximately one month prior to the report due date. However, in the past, RSP did not ask for a copy of the report or require proof that it had been sent. Sponsoring agencies have begun withholding new awards or additional funding if reports are not submitted, or not submitted on time. Not only does this affect the particular PI's project, it affects new awards or additional funding to the entire university. In addition, our auditors need a way to confirm that we have provided the deliverables, usually a final report, to our sponsors. As a result, we believe this new procedure will enable us to monitor the reporting process, as well as resolve any discrepancies of missing reports.

Your cooperation in providing copies of your transmittal letters is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or comments, please call Lori Gabriel or Jackie Frederick at ext. 2425.
