OSRP serves as the centralized grants and sponsored research office at MSU Denver for all public grants. All public grant proposals should be coordinated and submitted through this office. This centralized function is important because it enables us to:
(1) Be aware of any potential conflicts related to multiple submissions when that is prohibited by the funder or if internal competition would be detrimental to both proposals
(2) Maintain an accurate calendar of grants activity and anticipated work flow
(3) Better facilitate potential partnerships and other opportunities when synergies among investigators exist. Basically, the more OSRP knows about your project, the more we can help.
If a PI has not worked with OSRP up to this point in the grant process, they need to formally initiate the project with our office by contacting OSRP to enter your project information into our database system.
