Advice and Hints
Please contact your SPA team with questions and concerns.
- DO NOT enter UMCP persons from the employee look-up. Use the non-employee look-up and submit an Address Request if the person does not appear in the results. Entering UMCP persons causes validation issues and - more importantly - routing issues.
- 9-digit ZIP codes: The NIH validates for 9-digit ZIP codes for U.S. addresses for Key Persons, Performance Sites, and Subrecipients. Look up the ZIP code at usps.com
- NSF Proposals: Prepare NSF proposals for submission in NSF Fastlane.
- Protocol number (Compliance): Do not use spaces or special characters in the Protocol Number. Dashes are OK.
- Human Subjects Compliance entries

Help with Kuali Research software questions: In addition to the resources in this section, look for the Help link within your Kuali Research proposal. The Help link is on the right of the top menu bar and links to articles that, though not UMB-specific, provide information about the software. If you still need assistance, please contact your department administrator or your SPA team.
Assistance with Proposal Development: If you have a proposal question that is not directly related to Kuali Research such as Sponsor application guidelines or preparing a proposal budget, go to the SPA website or contact your department administrator or your SPA team.
Technical Help: Contact DLKualiResearchHelp@umaryland.edu and identify the Proposal number or document number when reporting a technical issue.
