Notify COERA of any potential grant interest and/or particular RFP as soon as you find it.
Final versions of the budget and all proposal materials (RFP-specific) are due to COERA 7 full business days prior to the day of the proposal deadline.
COERA must submit proposals to OSP at least 4 business days in advance of the proposal deadline. The 4 days include the proposal deadline day.
Proposals will receive authorizations from OSP and be submitted to the sponsor.
Large center grants or institutional training grants must be submitted at a minimum of one month before proposal deadline.
If your proposal contains subawards, complex/unique requirements, or special permissions requests (such as IDC complications or cost share), you must submit Proposal Submission Form by this deadline.
Dependent on time constraints, proposals submitted at this time may not receive a complete review but only a limited review involving full review of budgetary compliance and confirmation of documents required for submission.
COERA will serve as liaison between OSP and PI. PI must be accessible (via email or phone) to COERA in case problems or questions arise during this time frame.
PI approvals and conflict of interest (COI) compliance for large center grants must be done within one month of deadline.
PIs/co-PIs must notify their Department Chair of intent to submit and receive approval for Course Buyout, Cost Share, or Space Usage intentions.
