Proposal Review & Submission

OSP is responsible for reviewing the budget and other business elements for compliance with University processes and policies, sponsor requirements, and state and federal regulations.

OSP has opted to provide an initial review of the budget and other business elements prior to the KR PD record being submitted to internal approval routing so that corrections can be made before institutional approvals are triggered. Communication about the review happens outside of KR PD, by email or phone:

  • Budget information must be included within the KR PD record, and OSP should be notified that the budget is ready for review at least 5 business days prior to the sponsor deadline.
  • OSP will complete the review on a first-in, first-out basis, and will strive to complete the review no later than 2 business days after the notice was received.

After OSP has notified the PI and/or department that the business section review is complete, the proposal can be submitted to routing.

  • Proposals should be submitted for internal approval routing no later than 3 business days prior to the deadline.
  • Proposals should have all internal approvals before final submission.

For sponsors and/or systems that require OSP submission, allow for sufficient time for the submission process to be completed.
