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.
