43 but are not limited to, the costs of mailing and personnel
44 assigned to research or apply for a grant. Notwithstanding the
45 exemptions to competitive-solicitation requirements under s.

47 solicitation requirements under s. 287.057 for the procurement

63 grantors, persons, or organizations, or pharmaceutical
64 companies, that may monetarily or substantively benefit from the
