MPowering the State

MPowering the StateMPowering the State envisions a seamless working relationship – from research lab to administration of the research process. The interim Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) below reflect current business practices at this time. We ask that PIs, Departments, and Colleges work cooperatively with us through the new challenges this collaboration will bring.

If you have questions regarding a MPower proposal, please contact:

UMCP – Beth Brittan-Powell  

Important changes to MPower Waiver policy:

Due to the Uniform Guidance policy on cost sharing, new MPowering proposals submitted on or after October 20, 2014 should NOT exclude the Facilities & Administrative (F&A) on the first $25,000 of subawards made between the two campuses.

MTS Letter of Collaboration:

All proposals between UMCP and UMB should use this letter of collaboration. There are no additional requirements for MPowering proposals with regard to documents (i.e., no budget justification requirements).

MPowering the State Research Collaborative Arrangement

UMCP (for tracking purposes):

Add the MPowering unit to #9 on the routing form as a secondary unit for all PIs receiving DRIF credit split.  In Coeus the unit code is: 1420301. MPowering = 0% credit split.
