Reminder - Proposal Submission Deadline

Due to the volume of proposals submitted for external funding, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RESP) should be notified as soon as the decision is made to develop a proposal. Proposers should also notify their immediate supervisor(s).  To receive the required approval through the campus clearance process and meet proposal deadline(s), a detailed (line item) budget and at least a draft narrative for all proposals should be submitted to RESP no later than ten (10) working days prior to the deadline. Doing so guarantees proposers the full range of RESP services and time to secure the required campus approvals prior to submission. If a proposal arrives later than this deadline, RESP cannot guarantee timely submission.

When electronic proposal submission is required, additional advance time may be required.

If Federal Express mailing is necessary, RESP requires the complete proposal package, with all required administrative approvals, in our office two business days prior to the deadline. This will allow the time necessary to copy and package the proposal. Again, if this deadline is not met, RESP cannot guarantee timely proposal submission.
