grantwriting w00t! The grant proposal of DOOM is out. According to Pre-Award Services (our grants and contracts office), this is one of the first collaborations here that involves three collaborating institutions with no subawards. Kudos to them, and to our office manager Jodi; I couldn't have pulled it off without their help.
Never underestimate the power of bureaucracy: its is the power to turn something that should take an hour and had to be done today and defer it to tomorrow.
I have a mildly good feeling about this, nevertheless.
