              ORC Guidelines for Limited Submission Funding Opportunities:


Limited submission funding opportunities occur when a sponsoring agency restricts the number
of applications/proposals that can be submitted by an individual university or institution. When
this happens, the Office of Research and Commercialization (ORC) has established the following
process for selecting the proposal (or proposals) that will be submitted to the agency.

Limited Submission Review Process:

Step 1: As soon as a limited “Request for Proposals” (RFP) is published by a sponsoring agency,
ORC will send out announcements about the limited RFP.

Step 2: A timeline will be established for interested faculty members to submit a pre-proposal to
ORC. The pre-proposals are used by ORC to determine who will be selected to submit a full
proposal on behalf of UCF.

Step 3: ORC will form a review committee whose members have expertise in the RFP’s subject
area as well as experience in grant submission.

Step 4: Dr. M.J. Soileau, Vice President for Research, reviews the recommendations of the
review committee and makes the final decision.

Throughout this process, the names of the reviewers will not be revealed.

Please note that if the proposal is not submitted to the sponsoring agency via the Office of
Research & Commercialization at UCF, the proposal will be considered invalid by the
sponsoring agency.

Every attempt will be made to quickly and efficiently identify the faculty member(s) that
are chosen to represent UCF in submitting a full proposal to the sponsoring agency in order
to provide as much time as possible for the writing of the full proposal.

Limited Submission Letter of Intent Format:

Letters of intent for internal ORC review will include: A one page summary of the project
description. (You can just send our office a copy of the letter of intent that is being submitted to
the agency.)

Limited Submission Pre-Proposal Format:

Pre-proposals for internal review will include: (1) A maximum of a three page project
description and a one page budget that reflects the entire total project period; (2) Requests for
matching funds or any exceptions to campus policies must be identified at this stage of the
process and included in the budget page.

All applications for limited submission programs should include a cover sheet with the following
information:
Principal Investigator Contact Information
Name
Title
Email Address
Telephone Number

List of All Other Participants (and affiliations if not UCF)
