Comments about Fringe and Indirect Costs
All proposals are required to have a completed and signed Proposal Routing and Approval Form before submission. This form should be submitted to the grants office at least 3 days in advance of the submission due date. The grants office will forward the form for final review and approval.
The grants office will complete the submission of proposals that are required to be submitted through grants.gov or Fastlane. Proposals which are submitted directly to a sponsor (for example, via an email attachment) may be submitted directly by the PI.
Please plan to submit your proposal to the grants office at least one week before the submission due date. This allows for a thorough review, revisions, uploading of proposal documents and budgets, and a buffer for unanticipated issues. In addition, many grants are submitted via an electronic portal and these can be unreliable and slow, especially near deadlines. Planning to submit proposals to the sponsor at least 3-5 days before the deadline is strongly recommended.
Please notify the grants office once you receive the funding decision from the sponsor.
