Sending Proposals through Cayuse SP for OSU Signatures

At a recent Sponsored Programs training session, it was reiterated that before a proposal is sent through Cayuse SP for electronic signatures, it should have (at a minimum):

-  Abstract

-  Draft project description

-  Budget entered into 424, Fastlane, or NSPIRES forms

-  Bugdet Justification

-  Budget details (spreadsheet, labeled as “Budget, Internal”)

-  Subcontract budget, justification, and scope of work

-  Forms required by the sponsor

-  Submission notes if the proposal is not complete

-  If you submit through Fastlane, please Grant SRO Access now.

Sponsored Programs will NOT submit to NSF without your go-ahead.

An incomplete proposal sent through Cayuse SP does not guarantee that you have "met the 3-day deadline." The review period begins once you turn in the required elements. Sponsored Programs will try to accommodate you, but this is not always possible.

CEOAS Goings On...

G&G & OEB invited hosted a BBQ on Wednesday to celebrate several momentous occasions: Rob Holman "retiring", Marta Torres named GSA fellow, Alan Mix named AGU fellow and last but certainly not least, Jim McManus leaving us to take on a new position in the mid-west. To remind Jim what sort of weather he'll be leaving behind, it was rather cool and cloudy out...a typical Oregon summer day. Congrats all!
