Proposal Submission Timeline

We have a three (3)-business-day deadline for proposal documents to be delivered to UTIA Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), prior to the agency proposal deadline. This means that at least three (3) business days before the agency submission deadline, the proposal must have been approved by all units in Cayuse, have all final documents attached, and be ready for submission to agency. Proposals not received within the three (3) business day deadline will be marked in Cayuse as late and will receive limited to no review. In such cases, the PI will assume full responsibility for the failure of the proposal to be submitted by the deadline, for the proposal being returned without review by the sponsor, or for any delays in award setup stemming from the late proposal.
