Proposal Development

Proposal Development

PEASE NOTIFY THE OFFICE OF SPONSORED PROGRAMS REGARDING ANY PLANNED SUBMISSION WITHIN TWO WEEKS OF THE ANTICPATED SUBMISSION DATE.

Concord University requires that all funding / grant proposals, including budget,  be reviewed and approved by the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) prior to submission.  It is further mandated through state and institutional policy that all agreements are endorsed by an authorized institutional representative. OSP will review only the non-technical aspects of the proposal including all forms and budget documents and facilitate all authorized institutional signatures.

Required Institutional Approvals

In light of these and other requirements, the OSP requires project directors and/or principal investigators complete the proposal routing form, including obtaining requisite signatures prior to the submission of the proposal. If a completed routing form is not received by the submission deadline, the institution may submit the proposal with the understanding that a completed form is forthcoming. In these cases, the institution reserves the right to withdraw the proposal.

Foundation Grants and Funding Requests

For foundation funding / grant submissions, it is integral that you notify the OSP and/or Advancement as early as possible. In all situations, the University must review any active and/planned foundation requests prior to any formal contact with the organization for potential conflicts with institutional priorities. It is recommended that approval is sought prior to any contact. Financial requests without institutional approval are not permitted. In these situations, the institution reserves the right to withdraw the request.
