Proposals Routing Procedure
All proposals, included those submitted electronically, to all sponsors must be routed through the SOE Office. For routing, each proposal must include (1) a paper copy or web link of the Program Announcement/Request for Proposal from the sponsor; (2) Tufts Internal Coordination Form; (3) Financial Interest Disclosure Form; (4) a detailed budget; (5) budget justification; and (6) a DRAFT abstract of the proposal with FIVE key terms describing the content of the proposal. The current Tufts Internal Coordination Form and Financial Interest Disclosure forms must be signed by the PI/Co-PIs and Department Chair. These forms are available from the Office of Research Administration.
Proposals Routing Timeline and Review
This routing process and timeline will apply to all proposals submitted electronically as well as those being submitted on paper. We recognize that this represents a shift from current practice, and request your assistance in informing all investigators and staff, as well as adjusting your own practices, to accommodate this change for a timely and efficient submission of proposals.
