To ensure a thorough review of your proposal, the Office of Research Administration and Finance needs to have received a copy of your finalized application 5 business days prior to the sponsoring agency's deadline. In addition to administrative components (i.e., biosketch, budget, current/pending reports, etc.), a finalized application includes the necessary signatures (via PPF or COEUS) of the principal investigator's Dean and Chair. In addition, all approvals required for cost-share, space, and/or indirect cost waivers should be in place. Failure to comply with the 5 day policy requires a waiver from the Associate Vice Provost of Research Administration, which can only be obtained by email request from the Dean of the investigator's respective college.
Moreover, applications received less than 2 business days before the sponsor's deadline must be accompanied by a signed PPF Addendum in addition to aforementioned 5 day policy waiver.
