Pre-Award Lite

Goldfish Grow To Fit The Size Of Their Bowl

Research Institutions Grow To Fit The Size They Can Administrate

Pre-Award Lite makes Streamlyne Research more affordable, faster to deploy, and easier to use. It is essentially a slimmed-down version of Pre-Award that provides enough data for the most often requested report requirements with the least amount of administrative burden. This means that it will take less time to implement, have fewer fields to complete, be simpler to use, and save you a bundle of money! Additionally, Pre-Award Lite collects electronic PI signatures on compliance questionnaires, automates central office review and sign off, and monitors post-submission special review activity. Replace your shared drive and paper processes with a single electronic document that consolidates all proposal intake forms, routing forms, and certification forms. If you are a smaller research institution and working on a shoestring budget, or a larger institution that is not interested in S2S, and you are looking to grow your research volume, Pre-Award Lite is your solution.

Is Pre-Award Lite Right for Me?

  • Yes, if you’re a smaller institution working on a shoestring budget
  • Yes, if you’re a larger institution who feels full eRA features are overkill for your needs
  • Yes, if your institution plans to implement full eRA functionality but you prefer a project path that affords you fast productivity gains, keeps impact to your investigators to a minimum, and preserves options to add any combination of features later with ZERO REWORK
