To ensure timely processing of grant applications, final proposals must be routed in the Cayuse 424 electronic system and reach the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) for review and submission approval five business days prior to the sponsor's deadline.
In the rare event that a proposal cannot be submitted at least five business days prior to the sponsor's deadline, a waiver request will be needed to proceed with OSP's review for submission approval. This waiver request must be approved by the principal investigator's associate dean for research or equivalent and the director of sponsored projects.
While a waiver allows for the submission of a completed proposal after the five-day deadline, any items that require collaboration or review and approval by senior university leadership (i.e. letters of support, cost sharing, conflict of interest, etc.) must be finalized prior to submission and final review by OSP.
To request such a waiver, please complete the electronic form below.
