Institutional Resource Statements

Some sponsors want to make sure you have the necessary resources in order to conduct your work. Strong descriptions of institutional resources are essential when writing a successful proposal. You may wish to consider resources listed by the Research Computing Advisory Board, along with other units on campus.

Facilities and Other Resources

We recommend reviewing specific sponsor guidelines when completing this section of the proposal. Facilities and other resources can include offices, computers, labs, and other institutional resources. Support services, contractual agreements, partnerships, and other unpaid services may also be listed.

Data Management and Sharing Plans

Illinois State University has affiliated with DMPTool, an open-source online application built to assist researchers in creating comprehensive plans in easy-to-view formats. Use this tool through Central Login to access helpful institution-specific information. See also Milner Library's guide on this topic. Any specific questions regarding data management and sharing may be directed to Data Services Librarian Chad Kahl. Any specific questions regarding data security may be directed to the Technology Support Center.

Safe and Inclusive Working Environment Plan

Proposed National Science Foundation projects where data/information/samples are being collected off-campus or off-site must have a project-specific plan regarding safe and inclusive working environments. Add your project’s information to this template: Safe and Inclusive Working Environment Plan, as well as your signature. Do not include any hypertext in the document. You must ensure that the plan is shared with participating individuals prior to departure.
