Authorized Organizational Representative

The Office of Research & Innovation is the designated signatory for all proposals submitted on behalf of Drexel University and the Drexel University College of Medicine. The Authorized Organizational Representative with the authority to sign grant proposals, grant awards and grant-related contracts on behalf of Drexel University, rests with the Executive Vice Provost for Research and those with delegated authority.

All proposal documents that obligate University personnel, facilities, intellectual property or other resources require an authorized University signature. The signature assures that appropriate policies, procedures, legal requirements and risks have been addressed.

Since a proposal is an offer to perform research, services, etc., in exchange for institutional review and approval, take care should be taken when interacting with potential sponsors so they do not mistake preliminary discussions for institutional commitments.
