If a proposal cannot be submitted on time, even with a draft technical section, the PI must request an exception to the VCRE’s mandatory proposal submission procedures as follows:
1. Fill out and complete the fields below.
2. Ask the Chair/Head/Director to approve the request via email and upload it to this webform under "Supporting email" below.
VCRE-approved requests will be returned to the PI and the Chair/Head with a revised date and time for submission to OPAS. Submission of late proposals that must be submitted electronically require that the completed electronic forms and files for the proposal be received by OPAS by the revised internal deadline.
Please note: Late proposals that are not submitted to OPAS by the VCRE’s approved revised deadline will be processed by OPAS only after all other “on time” proposals have been submitted. Depending on the volume of proposals at peak times, PIs submitting late proposals may be required to underwrite the cost of additional staff help in an effort to improve the chances for successful submission.
