The WRPRAP Grant Review Committee meets twice per fiscal year to assess and rank applications based on their feasibility, impact, sustainability, supporting assets and vision. Within 30 days of the application deadline, all applicants are contacted by email regarding their application results. WRPRAP sends a Notice of Award to grant recipients, recognizing the work proposed and amount awarded.
After WRPRAP’s Notice of Award, organizations outside the University of Wisconsin are designated a funding award agreement. This agreement is signed by the University of Wisconsin Department of Family Medicine & Community Health and the award is set up through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP). This funding award agreement is the official contract between the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents and the receiving organization, or “Provider.” WRRAP will contact the Provider with the contract, which includes the Provider’s primary activities, amount of award and scope of work, along with information regarding method of payment and progress & financial reports. The awarded funds are accessible when all parties have signed to the terms in this agreement.
After WRPRAP’s Notice of Award, programs within the University of Wisconsin will follow standard internal procedures for award set up. In addition, University of Wisconsin awarded programs are expected to follow all WRPRAP award policies and University of Wisconsin financial policies. More detailed information regarding grant stipulations is included in the Notice of Award, and award set-up correspondences.
