All grant submissions require one signature of approval from OVPRI (RMS, , or ). As a rule of thumb, the deadline for internal submission of the proposal and RE form (signed by all parties) for signature is 72 hours prior to the agency deadline. This is in addition to any internal deadlines that a faculty research office may have in place, which will vary according to faculty procedures and funding programs. Contact your faculty’s research office and pay attention to RMS communications to stay informed of internal deadlines.
For major Tri-Agency funding competitions (, or ) requiring University e-submission, RMS must have received all finalized and approved materials by noon the day prior to the agency’s deadline. This is in addition to additional internal deadlines that may be set for review of the grant materials.
It is the researcher’s responsibility to ensure that the proposal is submitted on time and to understand the submission process for the target funding agency, as well as Institutional requirements.
