Coronavirus Information

Submission of new proposals is encouraged. The UTIA Office of Sponsored Programs is set up to telecommute and will continue to work to meet proposal deadlines, negotiate agreements, and process awards. Please be especially careful to avoid last-minute changes in budget, titles, collaborators, etc. Changes after the 3-business day deadline can jeopardize submission to the sponsor. Please continue to communicate with your OSP coordinator, and contact janeburns@utk.edu or aggrant@utk.edu if you have additional questions or concerns. We are here to help. Thank you for continuing to pursue your research, outreach, and scholarly programs with colleagues and students during these extraordinary times.

Work such as analyzing data, writing and reviewing manuscripts, preparing presentations, developing new grant proposals, convening online discussions with students and lab staff, and on-line compliance training is strongly advised. Please see the UTIA OSP Workshops and Learning webpage for learning and training ideas.
