Proposals need to be finalized before they are routed through the workflow approval process. Will ORS assistance be available for proposals (or parts of proposals) prior to “finalization”?
Yes. If you would like an ORS Contracts and Grants Specialist to assist with your proposal before it is “finalized”, please notify the Specialist assigned to your department/school. Contracts and Grants Specialist assignments may be found here
The PI is encouraged to work with the appropriate individuals during the proposal development process to minimize the risk of having a proposal rejected/returned after it has entered the workflow process. Please note that once a proposal is submitted/approved by the PI, it is automatically entered into the workflow approval process and if returned at this point, it will have to be re-routed through the approval workflow process.
