Route and Submit

Institutional Review

Every proposal to an external sponsor must always be reviewed by the Office of Research Administration (ORA). Faculty must also consult with the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) on any solicitation to a corporation or foundation. You may be the PI on your grant, but the university is the applicant and accepts all responsibility for legal compliance and liability for the project. ORA is Brandeis’ authorized representative for grants and contracts related to research and sponsored programs. In general, PI’s should never submit a proposal to a sponsor without first having ORA/CFR authorization.
