Grant Opportunities The Technology Workforce
Development Grant Program provides seed money
that would enable institutions to expand
enrollments in engineering and computer science
programs. TRAIL (Texas Records and Information
Locator) provides information on funding programs
administered by Texas state agencies. The
Advanced Research Program (ARP) and the Advanced
Technology Program (ATP) were created by the
Texas Legislature in 1987 as competitive,
peer-reviewed grants programs to fund scientific
and engineering research projects of faculty
members at Texas higher education institutions.
For additional information, see the ARP/ATP Web
Site at http//www.ARPATP.com The Perkins
Grants (formerly Workforce Education) area of the
Community and Technical Colleges Division is
responsible for administering federal grant funds
for the purpose of improving workforce education.
This includes the administration of Perkins basic
grants, categorical grants and discretionary
grants. It also includes cooperative
administration of Tech-Prep, School-to-Work, and
other inter-agency initiatives. The area also
assists the Texas Workforce Commission and
Council on Workforce concerning community and
technical colleges. Teacher Quality Grants
provide money to institutions of higher education
and nonprofit organizations for teacher training.
Minority Health Research and Education Grant
Program and the Nursing, Allied Health and Other
Health-Related Education Grant Program were
established by the 76th Legislature with proceeds
from the Texas Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement.
State Grants Team has information about other
grant opportunities in the State of Texas. Texas

Time Effort Reporting
The University of Texas at Austin
  • Typical Institutional Problems
  • (Source Report on Research
  • Compliance, May 2004 Huron)
  • PIs/admin. do not have a good understanding of
    regulations
  • Misreporting institutional base salary on
    proposals
  • Not tracking proposed/ committed effort
    comparing it to actual/certified effort
  • Personnel certifying effort reports do not have
    1st hand knowledge of employees work
  • Effort Reporting
  • Best Practices
  • PIs should certify own
  • effort reports
  • Institutional tracking
  • systems to track
  • committed effort
  • compare to actual effort
  • Effort reporting
  • educational systems
  • Periodic review
  • (internal audit)
  • Review 100 percenters

Digital Research Data Security
The University of Texas at Austin
  • Best Practices
  • 1. Review BPM 75 (http//www.utsystem.edu/bpm/75.h
    tm)
  • 2. Each Lead Researcher responsible for
    implementing BPM 75 for digital research data
    under that researchers control
  • 3. The Information Security Office will provide
    support and guidance needed to implement BPM
    75consult departmental IT contact
  • 4. Research staff report to Lead Researcher any
    concerns regarding securityLead Researcher
    should take immediate action to ensure that the
    data are fully protected
  • 5. Digital research data should be backed up at
    regular intervals (daily or at least monthly,
    depending upon the nature of the data) on secured
    sites (e.g., secured servers or alternate
    internal drives).
  • Best Practices (contd.)
  • The Minimum Security Standards,
  • not limited to
  • Anti-virus software
  • Security patches
  • Strong passwords
  • http//www.utexas.edu/computer/passwords/choose.ht
    ml
  • Offices or labs that house digital
  • research data must be secured
  • Lead Researchers provide access
  • only to authorized users
  • For research involving human subjects,
  • separate identifiers from the data
  • Discard data (e.g., disks, hard drives)
