Proposal Preparation Information

All Principal Investigators planning to submit a proposal should complete a Notice of Intent to Submit a Proposal form.  This form requests a minimum amount of key information to coordinate support for the proposal.

An advance, two-week notification to the Sponsored Programs Office of your intent to submit a proposal is strongly encouraged.

Complete proposals are due to the Sponsored Programs Office prior to the Sponsor's deadline.  Please refer to the Internal Deadline Chart to determine your proposal's internal deadline.

The Vice President of Research Office has launched the Sponsored Projects (SP) module of Cayuse. Faculty and staff who intend to submit a sponsored project proposal should use the Cayuse system to create your proposal and route for internal reviews and approvals. This replaces the current PDF-based transmittal process.  To assist in proposal creation, we have created a manual to assist users.  Please work with your Sponsored Programs Analysts for any questions that you may have. More information including FAQ's can be found on the Cayuse Implementation page.
