What is the PRA?

 The PRA is an internal processing document that discloses key project and compliance information, along with appropriate signatures/project approvals.  A draft of the PRA form along with administrative and budgetary components should be submitted to ORSP at least 5 business days prior to the submission deadline.  The final proposal package, including the fully completed (and signed) PRA form must be submitted to ORSP by 8:00am at least 3 business days prior to proposal submission.

 Who signs the PRA for submission to ORSP? (Section E of the PRA)

  1. The signature of Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-PI's.
  2. The signature of the Department Chair and/or Dean, depending on Division.  Please consult with your Department Chair, Department Administrator or ORSP Project Administrator on approval requirements for your Division.
  3. The signature of the Associate Provost for Research is required for indirect cost waivers or equipment matching request.

 The ORSP Director will sign the PRA form after it has been submitted to and reviewed by the ORSP Project Administrator.
