Limited Competitions Registry             Help

DEADLINE DATE ISSUE - We have recently discovered an issue with the internal UMaine deadline dates in the
search results. The problem is being worked on and should be resolved within a few days. Please contact Amanda Ashe (1-1480) to get the internal deadline date for a particular search result.

The Funding Opportunities Calendar is being retired in favor of PIVOT (formerly Community of Science), a comprehensive funding resource available to the UMaine community courtesy of Fogler Library.

The Limited Competitions Registry (Registry), which replaces the Funding Opportunities Calendar, is a database of active RFP’s for limited competitions, (RFP’s for which the University may submit only a certain number of proposals). Investigators wishing to be considered for a limited competition must sign up through the Registry. Please consult UMaine’s policy on Limited Competitions (PDF) for more details.

The Registry will be getting a new look in the coming weeks. During the transition, you can still search for limited competitions by ‘Sponsor’ or by the sponsor’s ‘Solicitation number’ (below). If you cannot locate a limited competition for which you are looking, please contact Amanda Ashe (
