The first step in assembling the full proposal is checking the sponsor guidelines for any additional required forms and materials. These may include:
The Office of Research and Engagement (ORE) is available for consultation on finalizing your proposal for submission.
When all components of your proposal are assembled you will submit the proposal to ORE who will in turn submit it to OGCA. Please keep in mind that all proposals from the university may only be submitted to sponsors by OGCA.
All proposals need to be submitted to ORE at least 10 business days before the sponsor’s deadline (accounting for mailing time and partner institution deadlines). Please note, partner institution deadlines may demand earlier submission to ORE and OGCA. Check with your partner institution and contact ORE accordingly.
ORE uses SmartGrant to route the proposal through the campus approval process. SmartGrant expedites proposal processing by enabling key signatories to provide approval electronically regardless of whether they are on campus or not. All proposals have to be approved by the PI, your department chair, and the Associate Dean of ORE before being accepted by OGCA.
