Preparing Proposals

Policies and Procedures

The Office of Research Administration (ORA) is the only institutional unit authorized to submit proposals (including those generated by the Office of Corporation and Foundation Relations) to external entities for financial support in the form of a contract, grant, or cooperative agreement and to commit the University in the event an award is made.

Proposals should normally be submitted to ORA five days prior to the submission deadline. Details on the policy concerning proposal submission deadlines can be found on the ORA website.
