Internal approval needs to be procured prior to any grant application submission. A typical routing path includes the approvals of department chairs, division heads, grants accounting manager, university compliance offices/committees, such as the Human Subjects Protection Program/Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Animal Use/Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and Provost Office.

The Grants Office is the final step in the process prior to proposal submission. Proposals are submitted by the institution on behalf of the principal investigator (PI). In the event that the sponsoring agency allows the PI to directly submit, a fully signed copy of the clearance and review form is required prior to submission.

The CRF is completed via DocuSign. Please reach out to Michelle or Bri, if you have any questions.
