Summit Proposals

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.

More information can be found on the  Summit Help You Tube channel, including a selection of training videos.

Users can also access the user guide from the landing page at
