Introduction to Pre Award

As the authorizing agent for the university, the Office of Sponsored Programs Pre-Award Team has three primary functions:

  1. To review solicitation/rfps for specific proposal and budget preparation instructions;
  2. To prepare budgets for proposals according to Virginia Tech and sponsor guidelines;
  3. To submit proposals to external sponsors

All proposals for external sponsorship prepared by Virginia Tech Principle Investigators must be submitted through the Office of Sponsored Programs.
