Good morning my sweet, sweet minions. Congratulations for making it through another week of work! To begin today, I’ll give you a short recap of my Thanksgiving festivities from Pittsburgh.
[Occasionally, we like to revisit posts from days gone by that either (1) are always relevant, or (2) are the subject of recent questions received by our office. In today’s From The Vault, we look at the three main types of awards.]
When engaging subrecipients, ORA always asks: What is the “full legal name” of the entity? And, often times, we’re asked why this is so important.
We hope that everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday, and that y’all are slowly but surely emerging from your food comas.
I’m heading off to the big city of Pittsburgh in a little while, but, before I left, I wanted to wish all of my minions the happiest of Thanksgivings. Tomorrow is one of the few days of the year where it’s okay to eat ten times your body weight of everything, and I hope you all take full advantage. . .I know I will.
Subcontracts are an integral part of the research process, and thus it’s imperative that institutions are mindful of all relevant regulations and obligations that lie therein.

No matter the experience or expertise of a PI or her institution, the bottom line remains that award applicants must convince a sponsor that they are worthy of receiving research funding. In this week’s NCURA YouTube Tuesday, Jeremy Miner, the Director of Grants and Contracts as the University of Wisconsin-Eau Clair, explains what he calls the ‘Persuasion Intersection’ that should be considered during the application process.
