Internal Submission Policy
The careful and thorough review of a proposal is critical to ensuring that the most competitive proposal, with the greatest opportunity for funding, is submitted to the sponsor. To allow for that review, the Research Administration Office has instituted a five (5) business day deadline for the receipt of the complete and final proposal. This internal deadline was designed to be as cooperative as possible with the Providence VAMC investigators. Adherence to this deadline will greatly reduce the probability of a proposal being rejected for non-adherence to guidelines. Research Administration can make no guarantee that proposals will be successfully submitted if this internal deadline is not met.
