Internal Deadlines: Institutional Review, Approval and Submission of Proposals
NU-RES’s grant officers review all proposals for compliance with the funding agency’s rules and regulations as well as Northeastern’s policies.
Full Review: NU-RES will guarantee an error-free submission if we receive the final, complete application for review 5 business days prior to the agency’s deadline.
Streamline Review:3 business days prior to the funding agency’s deadline please provide the abstract, budget and budget justification. Then, noon the day prior to the agency deadline the final, complete application (e-submission via agency’s system or .pdf in ePAWS).
Proposals with no Funding Agency Deadline: Proposal submission deadlines in ePAWS must be based on one of the following:
Listed deadline date and time within the funding announcement.
Note that NU-RES offices close at 5pm est. so any deadline time after 5pm will be treated as a 5pm deadline.
Email notification from sponsor/other party indicating a specific deadline date for submission.
If no deadline date is indicated/required then the proposal will be reviewed and submitted within 5 business days of when the final, complete application is routed to NU-RES in accordance with the institutional review guidelines.
Please be sure to notify your grants officer as soon as you know that you’ll be responding to an FOA/RFP
