UF Office of Research Changes Policy Regarding the Submission of Research Proposals
The UF Office of Research has issued a policy change regarding the submission of research proposals. Please note the implication for the College of Education.
UF Office of Research: The new policy for submitting proposals to UFIRST is 9 AM one business day prior to the date of the sponsor’s deadline.
COE OER: The new policy for submitting proposals and all supporting components of a completed proposal such as subcontract proposals, cost share commitments, approved budget, etc. is 9 AM two business days* prior to the date of the sponsor’s deadline. For example, proposals due any time on a Friday will need to be fully submitted to OER/Brian Lane no later than 9 AM on the previous Wednesday.
*For efforts such as IES and NSF when the college typically has multiple proposals, OER will offer PIs a schedule for submission that may be earlier than two business days prior to the sponsor’s deadline.
Please let OER know if you have any questions related to implications of this new policy for COE.
