Why does UMass Amherst require meeting internal due dates for proposal submission?

The Office of Pre-Award Services (OPAS) is committed to helping Principal Investigators and Project Directors get proposals submitted on time to meet funders’ deadlines. As the University's only Authorized Organization Representative, OPAS submits over 1400 new proposals each year. To meet that goal, we ask that you cooperate by following our review and submission policies and processes. We are happy to talk to you if you have any questions!
