UFIT can help make your proposal more competitive. Some of the ways UFIT facilitates proposal preparation are as follows:
Providing the cost of the computing services or hardware acquisition needed for the proposal’s budget form
Preparing a research computing commitment letter, if required by the funding agency (UFIT staff are happy to write a letter for your specific project.)
Supplying a description of the research computing facilities utilized in support of your project for the proposal’s facilities section
Also, the inclusion of an explicit data management plan is now required by most funding agencies, including the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. UFIT has the expertise to assist you in developing this plan.
The full list of service options offered are listed on the Research Computing Services page. Anyone who would like a consultation about UFIT’s Research Computing services prior to submitting a proposal may contact Dr. Erik Deumens.
