Routing Procedures

Print
  • The Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs requires that all faculty and staff members planning to compete for external funds submit a Routing Form.  In the routing form you will be asked to answer a series of questions regarding a variety of issues.  These issues include the relevance of proposed content, matching funds/in-kind contributions, indirect cost, additional required space, human subjects, and advanced technological needs. 

    The first page of the routing form needs to be completed and an abstract of the proposed concept attached.  Once the first page of the routing form is completed and signed by the appropriate chair and dean, the completed first page of the routing form then needs to be delivered to the Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs (located in Science 330).  OGSP will then set up a series of meetings to discuss grant-seeking strategies in order to increase the competitiveness of the concept.  
     
    Once the strategy session(s) have taken place, the grant-seeker may then begin the actual writing of the proposal.  Once the grant-seeker has written a draft of the proposal including the budget, OGSP will then seek the remaining signatures of approval needed to submit the proposal.  All application for external funds need the approval of the Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs, Controller’s Office, appropriate Vice President, and the President.  The grant-seeker should complete his or her draft one week prior to the deadline.
