OSP Proposal Review Guidelines

The Office of Sponsored Programs is open from 8:00am – 5:00pm each business day. Proposals with due dates and times outside of regular business hours must be received for review and submission in accordance with the stratified process described below and will be processed during regular business hours.

The level of proposal review that will be provided is based upon the date that the proposal is received by OSP. “Proposal Received” refers to OSP’s receipt of both the routed EPEX record and the final submission version of the proposal (whether in Cayuse, Fastlane, Proposal Central, or other method).
