Scheduling

  • The process for routing proposals must begin 11-14 business days prior to the submission deadline and the final file must be uploaded to ORAA no later than 5 business days prior to the submission deadline.
  • If you will need help with the budget and other non-scientific aspects of your proposals, please contact Meredith as far in advance as you can, but at least 20 working days prior to the submission date. That will allow enough time to create and review the paperwork and meet the campus deadlines. A greater lead time will provide opportunity for increased assistance, such as with rounding up agreement letters from proposed consultants, developing sole source justifications, etc.
  • For completed proposal packages that only require the chair and dean’s signatures, please submit your packages to Meredith for review at least 11 days before the proposal is due.
