For guidance on maintaining continuity of research and sponsored program activities during the COVID-19 crisis, please see ORSP’s Keep Discovering page.

Chapter 6 - Post-Submission Activities

The decisions involved after proposals have been submitted require that the faculty member and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs continue to work together closely. As with the transmittal process, the procedures for award review/acceptance and budget negotiation and/or proposal modification are established by university policy. The ORSP also coordinates university procedures for a Principal Investigator/Project Director’s withdrawal of a proposal. Should a proposal be denied funding, the ORSP assists faculty members in requesting reviewers’ comments and addressing the issues raised.
