ORSP's New Proposal Submission Deadline Policy

By Charles Parkos | December 11 2019

For future grant submissions, please take note of  ORSP's new Proposal Submission Deadline Policy which will take effect on January 6, 2020.  Please see the Research and Sponsored Projects website for more information.

Under this new policy, all proposals must be in final form for submission to the sponsor 15 business hours before the sponsor’s deadline. To ensure your grants administrator has sufficient time to assemble all the components of your proposal, we ask that you submit your final documents no later than 4 business hours prior to the new ORSP deadline.

Below is a timeline example:

  • Proposal due to the sponsor on Friday, September 20 at 5 pm.
  • Proposal must then be finalized by Thursday, September 19 at 9 am.
  • All final documents must be sent to your Pathology grants administrator by Wednesday, September 18 at 1 pm.

Also, due to the new policy, we are no longer able to pull back proposals from the sponsor or pull back previously finalized proposals awaiting submission during the 15 hour period before their due date.

If you have any questions regarding this new policy, please feel free to reach out to your grants administrator.
