• Just-in-Time (JIT) submissions represent the step immediately preceding the issuance of a research or sponsored program agreement
  • Used to verify and update key information prior to making an award (provides clarified information on what was submitted at proposal stage)
  • JIT documentation may include:
    • Regulatory Information (i.e. IRB, IACUC, biosafety approvals, etc.)
    • Information pertaining to the current/pending support of senior key personnel in order to verify effort;
    • Revisions to the project budget or scope; and/or
    • Verification of training on key safety and ethical responsibilities (e.g. human subjects education).
  • Intention of the JIT is to reduce administrative burden, as this documentation is only requested if there is a likelihood of the project being funded
  • Not all funding agencies require just-in-time submissions
