FOUR DAY PROMISE - OVPR
To improve its support to faculty, the pre-award unit of Sponsored Projects Administration is offering a new promise. Beginning January 1, 2016, its staff will ensure the successful submission of all proposals that are received in complete form at least four business days prior to the deadline. To qualify, proposals must be in the Portal in “ready to submit” form by the four-day-in-advance deadline and include the narrative, all letters of support, bios, etc. Grants officers will ensure the successful submission of all such proposals through Grants.gov or the electronic system specified by the relevant funding agency.
To qualify, you must work with Michael McGough, FACS Grants Coordinator to have proposals to the stage of “ready to submit” in advance of this new proposed timeline.
