Proposal Routing Form
The Proposal Routing Form provides information to the dean, department, research administration and institutional officials regarding the proposal. The form must be completed for all proposals and other activities involving sponsored activity and routed for Institutional approvals. This form serves as a checklist for much of the information necessary for processing proposals, as well as compliance certifications required for proposal submission. Detailed instructions for completing the Proposal Routing Form can be found on the Proposal Routing Form page of the OSP website.
The principal investigator should route the signed proposal routing form, completed proposal, and budget information to his/her respective unit chair and dean before submission to the OSP. Individual signatories are expected to review all proposals when they are routed for approval. By signing off on the proposal routing form, the approving party certifies, per the language in the form, that the proposed project has support and approval of the academic unit.
