Proposal Deadline Policy

Effective January 4, 2010; updated March 2023

The Office of Research Administration is the sole institutional entity with authority to submit proposals for sponsored projects to external funding agencies and is responsible for assuring that these proposals are consistent with sponsor requirements; with federal, state and local laws and regulations; and, with Brandeis' institutional, academic, and fiscal policies. Given the growing complexity of the proposal submission process and the often large number of proposals being submitted for the same deadline, it is critical that principal investigators adhere to the following internal deadlines so that ORA staff have time to properly review a proposal and ensure that it is fully compliant before its submission. Note that proposals without a firm sponsor deadline are still required to follow the processes outlined in this policy.
