Summit is a proposal development and internal submission system. Virginia Tech built a customized solution for research administration processes. The system simplifies the process of initiating a proposal, developing the associated budget, and obtaining needed approvals.
Faculty and Departmental Support Staff start the proposal process in Summit to initiate a proposal or request a budget. The entire process for development, management and approval takes place in Summit. As a result, all the communication, documents and data are in one place.
