When should I submit my proposal to the Office of Research?

Office of Research must review and approve all proposals prior to sponsor submission. The increase in e-submissions has highlighted the need for sufficient lead time to ensure successful submission.

In order to ensure sufficient time for review, corrections and on-time submission, Office of Research should receive the proposal at least five working days prior to the sponsors due date. If subcontracts to other institutions are planned, then Office of Research should receive the proposal at least ten working days prior to the sponsors due date.
