Proposal and Grant Development

The Office of Program Development at UMass Medical School works with clients to develop proposals and facilitate grant application responses. We provide structured processes and response frameworks and collaborate with our clients’ content experts. Our team members are equally adept at serving within a client’s proposal team or actively leading it.

When serving as team leaders for a client proposal or grant, our consultants oversee the process from start to finish and also manage regulatory issues that arise during development. We utilize the knowledge of content experts within the team, at UMass Medical School, and in relevant industries during the proposal and grant development process.

Our process, which relies on program development best practices, includes the following:

  • Identifying the client’s needs 
  • Generating a targeted, thorough proposal 
  • Using gate methodology to ensure a structured review at predefined checkpoints during the development process
