 In order to provide the highest level of service and meet regulatory/institutional requirements the proposal submission policy is updated as follows:

 Effective March 11, 2014

  1. We request that PI's contact ORSP as soon as they indentify a potential submission, but no later than 10 business days prior to the submission deadline. Notifications received within 10 days of submission will require approval by the Associate Provost for Research to be accepted by ORSP and submitted.ORSP requires the following information:
    1. Sponsor
    2. Solicitation Number (and weblink, if applicable) or copy of Solicitation
    3. Proposal Due Date
    4. Estimated total budget
    5. IDC Waiver requested (if applicable)

  2. The completed Proposal Review and Approval (PRA) form along with the administrative and budgetary components must be submitted to ORSP at least 5 business days prior to the submission deadline. The PRA form must be signed by the PI(s) and by the Chair/Dean (or their appropriate designee). The signature of the Associate Provost for Research is required for waivers of indirect costs or university provided equipment matching funds.

  3. The final proposal submission package (including the scientific narrative, final budget and signed PRA form) must be received by ORSP by 8:00am, 3 business days prior to the submission deadline. Submission of proposals received after this time can not be guaranteed. A completed PRA form (including all approvals) is required for any submission. Proposals without a completed PRA form will not be submitted by ORSP.

In cases where the PI knows that these deadlines will be hard to meet due to extenuating circumstances we request ORSP and the Associate Provost for Research be notified at least 5 business days prior to the submission. Examples of such extenuating circumstances are:

    • Consortium proposals
    • Significant subcontracts in proposal requiring subcontractor information
    • Solicitation published within 14 days of submission deadline

If you have any questions, please contact your ORSP Project Administrator. Link to policy - ORSP/Proposal Review.
