Proposal Office Contacts

Proposal Office Contacts

The NCAR Proposal Office provides support for proposal development, compliance and submission from assisting with interpretation of internal and sponsor policies and procedures, review of PACUR criteria, and proposal approval to submission of proposals through sponsor electronic systems.  Our website provides policies, procedures and guidelines for submitting non-NSF, NSF grant and NSF special projects, including MOUs and unfunded collaborations.   All proposals require review and approval by the NCAR Proposal Office prior to submission.

The NCAR Proposal Office is also involved in several preaward and post award activities such as tracking award/decline statistics, account key approval, prespend and overspend approval, STORM requests, project overspend management, ARRA reporting and NSF FastLane reporting for activities awarded through the NSF Cooperative Agreement.

Please send all proposal related emails to ncarprop@ucar.edu.  Emails sent to this alias will be directed to Valerie Koch, Elizabeth Chapin, Rebecca Greenberg and Christina Book.  Use of the alias ensures that your proposal questions will be addressed in a timely manner.
