Discuss with your Departmental chair/director and Associate Dean of Research and International (ADRI) giving a heads-up that you will be applying for a teaching release, they need to approve this, and it has to be budgeted in your project. When completing the CU Authorisation list you must add the teaching release into the request for approval. The cost of a teaching release can be confirmed with the chair and ADRI. Space, as above, complete the CU Research https://carleton.ca/coris/funding-process/curesearch/· Most proposals need to have an institutional legal signatory sign-off on it, the policy and the commitment letter, signed by the University’s authorized signatory, for international.
Calculating Indirect costs of Research: Carleton’s policy and distribution formula (you get some back!)Remember we do not have a NICRA (negotiated indirect cost of research administration, basically an audit from the US Federal system) and so if you are getting a sub-award from a US university, and or are applying directly for Federal funding, we have to default to 10%. However, if you are budgeting for a foundation, then we go with the foundation rules, some might restrict you to 15%, others 20% and if they are prepared to go higher, all the more for your effort. Please note that if the indirect cost is “inclusive” in the total then please use the following formula:
eg: $100,000*20/120=$16,666.66 The total direct cost is therefore $83,333.33
When a multi-party or consortium proposal is being developed the partnerships, if not already mature, are under construction. Some consideration needs to be given at the proposal stage of the start-up phase of a successful multi-party award looks like.
It is important for the PI to consider:
How partners in the network or consortium will be contributing to the research objectives and also how they will be remunerated
How the funds will be transmitted and how Carleton will be able to remain accountable for the partnership.
Consultant: Consultant is defined as a person or entity that, under an agreement, provides expert or strategic advice and related services. The following licensed professionals do not constitute consulting services: medical doctors, veterinarians, engineers, architects, accountants, lawyers and notaries. https://carleton.ca/facts/glossary/c/consultant/.
Check the funding criteria of the sponsor. If you are applying as the principal investigator the international funders are less restrictive regarding the categories of direct costs. In a multi-year project that includes building upon international partnerships, facilitation of several international interactions, sub-awards to partner organizations, and research administration it makes sense to include a post for an international project coordinator as a grant employee. Speak to email@example.com to consider this option.
As a researcher at Carleton University, your first step in finding international sources of funding is to register an account with * Research Professional. To achieve this, your first step is to see “Find Funding” on our Roadmap webpage; then go to MacOdrum Library, Databases, find *Research Professional. You can use our link to enter the website and register your personal account using your Carleton email address. Please note, however, that for a number of reasons, you cannot find Carleton University in the institutional registration. Please use your personal information to register.
*Research Professional provides detailed and specific project information and funding information from various organizations. Using this site to find information can help save resources for Carleton’s international programs department and improve your program application efficiency. Especially for small grants, the website will provide better help than the department members.
The most important information you can achieve on this website is Funding. Click Funding, and you can quickly search items by keyword or academic category. In some cases, you may not be able to find the results you want directly in the Opportunity search bar. This may be because the keywords are inaccurate or the scope is too broad. At this point, you can click “Advanced Opportunities Search” and then click “Discipline.” In the window, you will see a new search bar. Type the keyword for the item you are looking for into the search bar again and you will get all the results related to it.
Sometimes the US universities have divisions for sub-awards, so then my “counterpart” tends to be whoever is going to draw up the sub-award to Carleton, however, the counterpart might also be the pre-award research administrator and they are very knowledgeable about Federal funds (I tend to let them lead on these issues)
Do you intend to Transfer specimens, and or ethics protocols from another university to Carleton? Do you need the FWA number for Carleton’s ethics approvals?
