Proposal Submissions on Summer Fridays
In light of President Fry’s summer gift of time, the Office of Research offers the following reminders regarding proposal preparation and submission:
- Notify your pre-award administrator as soon as possible of any planned submissions.
- Create and route Coeus records as early as possible so that all approvals are in place prior to the internal deadline.
- Prepare to submit prior to the sponsor’s deadline to avoid system errors caused by high volume.
- No proposal will be submitted to the sponsor without a fully routed Coeus record.
Please note that while pre-award staff will be available to submit proposals with sponsor deadlines on Fridays between June 23 and Sept. 1, others involved in the approval process may not be available on Friday afternoons for last minute approvals, changes or corrections. This includes departmental administrators, co-investigators, department heads, and deans. It is therefore imperative to ensure that all necessary approvals are in place prior to noon on summer Friday deadline days and that submitters remain accessible to pre-award staff until final confirmation of successful submission is obtained.
Please contact your pre-award administrator with any questions or concerns.
