Once the proposal is successfully submitted and accepted by the sponsor, there is a post-submission period during which the sponsor will perform their administrative review.
Requests from the Sponsor
During this post-submission period the sponsor may contact the university to request additional information/documentation. These requests may include:
- revised budgets,
- IRB and/or IACUC approvals,
- verification of F&A rate agreement,
- clarification of other support, or
- general inquiries to help the sponsor make a determination whether the project should be awarded.
NIH refers to these requests as Just-In-Time (JIT). Often, the sponsor will require a very short turnaround time to respond to these requests.
Post-submission requests should be submitted to the sponsor by the university’s authorized organizational representative (AOR).
Please forward any official communication received from the sponsor, including a notification of award, to the Office of Sponsored Projects.
