What is a Limited Submission?

Many federal, state and private funding agencies issue requests for proposals that limit the number of applications they will accept from an institution. Texas Tech University has established a process to identify limited submission opportunities and internally select applicants to submit full proposals in response to a particular program. The following policy is designed to support an equitable review process while preventing any submission disqualifications due to submissions from Texas Tech University beyond the allowed number.

Process

NOTE: A Notice of Intent (NOI) and internal proposal (if required) will be due to https://ttu.infoready4.com by 5:00 p.m. on the deadline (TTU Notice of Intent Deadline) identified on the Limited Submission webpage. Any NOIs or internal proposals submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

Once your application is completed, click on "Submit."

NO Competition:

  1. Identify desired submission opportunity
  2. Submit NOI to ORD by TTU Notice of Intent Deadline
  3. If less NOIs submitted than required, ORD notifies PI to move forward with full proposal

Competition:

  1. Identify desired submission opportunity
  2. Submit NOI to ORD by TTU Notice of Intent Deadline
  3. If more NOIs submitted than requires, ORD notifies PI of requirements and due date of documents.
  4. Peer Review Team reviews and scores internal proposal.
  5. Highest score(s) allowed to proceed to full agency proposal

Disclaimer

Please note that you have been chosen to represent Texas Tech University. Therefore, it is your responsibility as PI to immediately notify us should your team not be able to submit the proposal within 1 month of the submission deadline. This then allows time for another team to represent TTU in submitting a proposal for this opportunity. Should your team not be in a position to fulfill the commitment and not notify VPR within the 1 month deadline, please be advised it may affect your chance in future limited submission competitions.

Internal Proposal Competition Format

Each PI will be notified of specifics for that limited submission funding opportunity; however, the internal proposal format generally includes:

  • Cover page (Title, PI/Co-PI Name(s), Department(s), email address(es), Key Participant(s)
  • 2-3 page proposal summary
  • Estimated budget (including cost sharing details if applicable) C.V.

Depending on the proposal, additional information/documents may be required. The PI will be notified of additional requirements if needed. These documents are then reviewed by an internal Peer Review Team with the highest scored proposal(s) approved to go forward to the sponsor. The names of selected PI(s) will be listed on the Limited Submissions website.

Limited Submission Not Listed on Website

The Office of Research Development Team (ORD) identifies limited submission funding opportunities through internet searches, web services and historical opportunities. However, despite the best efforts of ORD, not every funding opportunity may be identified.

Anyone who wishes to apply to a limited submission opportunity that is not posted on the Limited Submissions webpage should indicate this on their Notice of Intent application and provide a link to the program announcement in the text box provided on the Limited Submission Notice of Intent application form on the Competition Space website: https://ttu.infoready4.com/.

NOTE: Failure to follow these guidelines may result in disqualification of an applicant for the relevant grant competition.

Once notification is received, ORD will review the guidelines, determine if the situation warrants an NOI or pre-proposal announcement, and if so, establish appropriate internal due dates and post the announcement to the Limited Submissions webpage for competition.
