Proposals must be approved

Published August 29, 2017

Effective Oct. 1, 2017, Sponsored Projects Services (SPS) will not submit a proposal application unless it has a fully signed approval form.

Approval process


Beginning Oct. 1, 2017: Because UB wants to ensure that all appropriate institutional parties have reviewed and certified their approval of a particular proposal, SPS will no longer submit any proposal application without a fully signed approval form. This is in accordance with the UB Proposal Submission Policy.

Fully approved means that all co-PIs, chairs and deans have reviewed, approved and signed.

We highly recommend that a PI submit his or her approval form at least five (5) business days before the anticipated submission date.

If you have any questions please contact Jeffrey Schieder, SPS Pre-Award Director or 645-4408.
