UFIRST Proposal System Is Now Live

The University of Florida Integrated Research Support Tool (UFIRST) is now live!  You can log into the new system directly at https://grants.research.ufl.edu or through the link in myUFL under Grants>Proposals. All proposals and agreements related to sponsored programs at the university must now be submitted through UFIRST.

Here are a few key reminders:

  • Complete training if you have not already done so.  If you require administrator-level access to the new system, please be sure you have completed the new RSH280 course as well as RSH220 Effort Fundamentals, RSH230 Effort Management, and RSH260 Cost Principles.
  • Open labs are available for hands-on assistance.  Click here for times and locations.
  • Instruction guides to support you are available here.  If you hit a roadblock in entering or routing your proposal, check these first.  If they don’t answer your questions, call or email the Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP) at 352-392-9267 or ufirst@research.ufl.edu.
  • Included in these guides are one to assist PI’s with certifying/signing their records and one to assist department, division, and college approvers with approving in UFIRST.

As always, if you have questions, concerns, or thoughts throughout this process, please email DSP at ufirst@research.ufl.edu.
