Proposal Routing and Approval
Funding opportunities come with specific requirements for information and documents to provide in proposal submission applications. The Office of Sponsored Programs is here to ensure that proposals meet all federal, state, other sponsors, and university guidelines and requirements. Our team performs a multi-level compliance review on proposal applications prior to submission.
Refer to the Proposal Submission Timeline Chart [pdf] to review critical milestones and the actions needed to meet sponsor deadlines.
The timeline applies to:
- All extramural proposals (including proposals for sub-awards) for which there is a sponsor mandated deadline
- Letters of Intent
- White papers
- Other pre-proposal submissions that contain or propose institutional commitments, including budgets or cost share
Review Time Needed
A full detailed proposal review and complete routing prior to submission require that proposals be submitted to the Research Foundation for approval seven working days prior to the sponsor's submission deadline.
The Proposal Routing and Approval Form
The Proposal Routing and Approval Form (PRAF) with instructions [pdf] summarizes important proposal information such as the project abstract, budget, and approval for human or animal subjects.
