Two-Tier Internal Deadline Implemented for all NSF Opportunities

Two-Tier Internal Deadline Implemented

For all NSF Opportunities

Due to the success of the two-tier internal deadline pilot, and in addition to its implementation to all NIH proposals, the Sponsored Programs Office will expand and permanently implement the two-tier internal deadline structure for all proposals due to the NSF on or after July 1, 2018.

As a reminder, all final internal documents and the application package are due to the Sponsored Programs Office no later than 7:00 a.m., 1 week (7 calendar days) prior to the sponsor deadline.  The application package must be completed in the appropriate submission system (Fastlane, Research.gov, NIH ASSIST, or Grants.gov Workspace).  Not all of the science documents in the application package, however, need to be final and the application package does not need to include the completed budget forms.  Once the Sponsored Programs Office receives the internal documents and the application package, personnel in the Sponsored Programs Office will enter the approved budget into the applicable application package….the PI/researcher will not need to complete this task.

All final science related documents are due via e-mail to the Sponsored Programs Office no later than 7:00 a.m. the day of the sponsor deadline.  Once received, personnel in the Sponsored Programs Office will upload the final documents into the application package.  This later deadline will provide valuable time for the PI/researcher to focus on the science aspects of the proposal.

The specific science related documents for the application package will be identified and communicated to the respective Principal Investigator once the intent to submit is known.

Feel free to contact the Sponsored Programs Office at 487-2226 if you have any questions.
