"Pre-award" consists of two offices in the division of Research, Economic Development & Graduate Education ("R-EDGE") that provide services for the preparation, approval, and submission of proposals for sponsored projects and funding provided by off-campus funding entities. 

Where the funding comes from determines which pre-award office does the work.
