Limited submission programs are those funding opportunities where sponsors restrict the number of proposals an institution may submit for consideration for an award. Typically, sponsor guidelines or solicitations will include language such as "Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization" or refer to internal coordination prior to submission. Sponsors with limited submission programs vary, from federal agencies to smaller, non-profit organizations.
Coordinating limited submissions is important, since sponsors can reject all proposals received from UTPA if the number exceeds the organizational limit allowed. In these situations, UTPA must therefore internally screen all eligible and interested nominees to determine which will represent the university. The vehicle to do this is through the limited submission "pre-proposal," designed to provide sufficient information to select finalists that can submit full proposals. Internal Pre-Proposal Preparation Guidelines are available here (UTPA Limited Submission Document)
Evaluation Criteria - All evauluation criteria given in the program solicitation, announcement, or guidelines should be addressed in your pre-proposal. If additional UTPA evaluation criteria are going to be required, information regarding those criteria will be sent to all eligible applicants via email prior to any internal pre-proposal deadline.
