Change in Internal Deadline for January 23, 2017 submissions

Due to the large number of proposals expected to be submitted to sponsors on January 23, 2017, the Sponsored Programs Office (SPO) finds it necessary to adjust the internal proposal deadline for this specific date only to two working days prior to the sponsor’s deadline.  The additional time will allow for our analysts to perform sufficient review of all proposals to ensure sponsor deadlines are not missed.

The internal deadline for those proposals due to sponsors on January 23rd will be January 19th at 7:00 a.m.  In order to apply the revised deadline equitably to all PI’s, proposals sent to SPO after the internal deadline will not be submitted to sponsors.
