Grants & Sponsored Programs

We specialize in slaying repetitive, time-wasting pre- and post-award tasks, so you can focus on high-value activities that win more research projects and reduce institutional risk.

Simplify Complex Budgeting Processes

Sponsor budgeting rules can be complicated and strict, and inconsistent. Electronic budgeting systems are rigid. Time is always short, and getting the budget “just right” is hard. Bad Rabbit can help simplify your entire process - simpler electronic budget data entry forms, easier spreadsheet imports, and automated error checking of proposals.

Turn Data into Insight

Do you have access to the information you need to run your grants office in the best way possible? What’s the proposal volume by department, PI, and budget? What’s your true award rate? Why does award setup take so long? We can help you leverage the systems data you already have to get answers and improve your processes.

  • Identify patterns for proposal success that can be leveraged across the institution

  • Detect and alleviate process bottlenecks to improve productivity and workflow

  • Provide executive leadership a view into the health and growth of the research business

Post-Award Integration (with less duplication)

Integration - a fancy word for something fairly simple: to make software systems talk to each other and share common information. Do you have to call someone whenever you want a status report on an award? Integration can provide auto-generated status reports for related work items that feed straight into your awards management system. It can give you alerts about important compliance changes affecting the award. And it helps eliminate duplicate data entry and keying errors when building ERP financial accounts. Integration - it’s your new best friend.
