CHESS codes and DUNS numbers. AWR and USPTO. Whether you’re dealing with an IDIQ, an NCE or even a plain old RFP, these are terms and acronyms just about every PI and GA will run into sooner or later (and that goes for all you VC’s, too).
If you ever finding yourself struggling to make sense of grants, proposal writing and the Division of Research and Economic Development in general, the DORED Glossary and Guide to Acronyms (.doc) may be just what you’re looking for. And if you think of a term or acronym that should be in there but isn’t, let us know! Use the blog’s comment function or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
