Contract and Grant Pre-Award Submission Deadlines
Important Notice Regarding Contract and Grant Pre-Award Submission Deadlines
Investigators, Center Directors, and Department Administrators,
The COE Dean's Office requires that grant and contract proposals be submitted in Cayuse at least 7 days in advance of the agency deadline. This allows an appropriate review and approval of the proposal by the Department Chair, Center Director (if applicable), and Sylvia Celedon-Pattichis (Senior Associate Dean for Research and Community Engagement) before it goes to the UNM Sponsored Projects Office (OSP). UNM OSP requires that it be submitted a minimum of 5 days before the deadline.
Please note that the complexity of submission for large federal grants (specifically NIH, NSF) necessitates that the proposal be loaded in Cayuse for initial review at least 10 working days in advance of the agency deadline. This is to insure that we can take care of all of the potential issues encountered both in final budget approval and online submission. Please return to the PI Toolkit for additional instructions on submitting proposals.
