Proposal Process

All proposals to external funding sources ("sponsors") in support of sponsored programs, are submitted by the Office of Pre-Award Services (OPAS.)

Your complete proposal is due to the OPAS five working days before the sponsor deadline.  See the following links for an overview of the steps involved in the proposal process:
