Researchers who are developing grant proposals often need boilerplate text to fulfill the requirements of granting agencies such as the NSF. The text below can be used as a starting point for describing general computing facilities and general data management practices. It should not be considered definitive. Proposal language must be reviewed to ensure it is appropriate and satisfies the specific agency requirements.
Comprehensive guidance is readily available from service groups with expertise in developing grant proposals. The CMU University Library is but one of many such providers. Links are included below.
