Grant Policy Updates

3-Day Grant Submission Policy

The Office of Research and Technology Management (ORTM) has implemented a new 3-Day Grant Submission Policy detailing the time required by the ORTM when reviewing and submitting proposals to external sponsors. In this policy, submissions for external funding must be fully routed through the SPARTA system (including letters of intent and submissions where CWRU is the subcontractor) and must be in the ORTM queue 3 days prior to the sponsor's submission deadline. Failure to adhere to this policy will likely result in your proposal not being submitted to the external sponsor.

Exceptions can be requested for certain situations; the process is detailed in the policy notice. Exception requests will be reviewed by the Vice President for Research.

If you plan on applying for funding, please complete our CFRS Service Request Form as soon as possible so that a timeline can be developed to ensure that the new policy is met.
