Identify funding agency and submit a Notice of Intent Form to ensure that adequate time is reserved for assistance with the internal clearance process and to submit your proposal and appropriate agency forms before the submission deadline date.
Two to four weeks in advance contact and/or submit draft budget to Pre-Awards Grants Administrator, Office of University Research (firstname.lastname@example.org or 985-4539). Upon final approval by PI the final budget will be forwarded to the ORSP to begin the internal clearance process. Foundation Pre-Award Budgeting Information.
Complete an Internal Clearance Form and submit to ORSP. The form, along with the final budget and summary/abstract/scope of work is circulated via email for approvals by the PI, Co-PI, Department Chair, Dean, and Administrative Services Manager (ASM). For proposals requiring cost match/cost share, additional documentation may be required. This process may take 4-5 days. Internal clearance can be processed before the proposal is finalized and must be completed before the proposal can be submitted.
Once the Internal Clearance Form has been approved by the department and college, it is circulated to the Foundation for budget audit, then receives final review by Administration and Finance and Academic Affairs. When all reviews have been completed the proposal can be submitted. When electronic submission is required, OUR staff will assist the PI in completing agency forms and uploading the proposal, particularly the budget. The proposal will be submitted by the AVP for Research or Designee.
ORSP will notify the PI via e-mail, copying the Foundation, that internal clearance has been completed and will assign a log number.
When an award is received, the Foundation contacts the PI directly to assign a project number and project manager for post-award fiscal administration.
