The NIH and the UMMC Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) communicate submission policies that may impact your application submission. UMMC ORSP performs the required administrative review and approval of proposals prior to submission to the funding agency. To allow adequate time for this internal review and approval process, ORSP has communicated its submission policy. Occasionally internal delays resulting from late proposal submission to ORSP result in the application not being submitted in time to meet the funding agency deadline. Please review these policies to avoid delays in submitting your proposal to the funding agency.
