All applications for external grant support are subject to prior review and approval by select campus officials. The review/approval process is guided by a local routing form. This "routing form" is designed to capture some basic facts about the grant application and to capture two sets of signatures:
- Signatures of concurrence from all faculty who are expected to participate in the grant program; and,
- Signatures of campus officials with oversight responsibility for different aspects of grants activity including Dean(s) of participating faculty; the Research Foundation Campus Operations Manager; the Provost; and the Office of the President. From time-to-time other signatures may also be necessary.
The Office for Research and Sponsored Programs shall be responsible for obtaining approval signatures of campus officials following the Dean's endorsement. It is important for faculty to work directly with their Department Chair and Dean to assure projected workload (instruction, service and research) allows for the proposed grant activity.
