Proposal Submission

Applications and proposals for sponsored projects are most often submitted electronically; however some sponsors still request paper applications. OSP is available for assistance regardless of the submission mechanism.

Adherence to OSP’s service guidelines will provide our customers with the best quality support and ensure that your application is compliant with solicitation requirements as well as SU policies and procedures.

To avoid last minute proposal submissions, please take the following steps:

  • Read the solicitation / application instructions carefully;
  • Use the OSP budget template;
  • Ensure the IRR form has been approved by all required authorized signers by the proposal submission deadline; and
  • Complete the entire application at least one week before its due so you can provide it to OSP three business days before the deadline.
