For Your Information
I hope everyone had a great spring break, I know I did!!
We have been having a few issues with proposal submission as of late. Before any proposal is
submitted to an external funding agency, they must be approved for submission by key people
on campus. For this reason, we have developed an Internal Approval to Submit Form. This form
should be filled out and signed by all of the necessary individuals, which include the Project Director(
s), Chair, Dean, VPAA and VPBO. As the Grants Office Director, I will also sign the form
before submission. This ensures that the proposal follows the guidelines and the budget has
been properly developed. Once the Form has been signed by all required parties, the proposal
can be submitted to the funding agency. All approvals MUST be obtained BEFORE the proposal
can be submitted, whether it is a hard copy or electronic submission.
It is important to contact the Grants Office early in the process so that we can help you with the
Internal Approval Form and other necessary forms that may require authorized signatures. The
only people authorized to sign contract or grant agreements on behalf of the university are Mr.
Dan Whitfield, VPBO, and the President.
