TIMING OF PROPOSAL SUBMISSION

  1. RELATED POLICIES

    UCSD Policy and Procedure Manual (PPM)

    20-3 - Coordination of Regents' Agenda Items

    150-2 - Solicitation and Acceptance of Contracts and Grants

    150-12 - Proposal Submission & Review

  2. LEAD-TIME REQUIREMENTS

    1. UCSD Office of Contract and Grant Administration

      To assure compliance with agency deadlines, the final draft of every proposal must be received by the Office of Contract and Grant Administration no later than ten working days prior to the specified deadline. The proposal must be accompanied by required special forms and/or approvals when applicable as set forth in PPM 150-12. Proposals received with the same deadline date will be processed in the order received.

    2. Agency

      Federal agencies lacking specific deadlines normally require submission of proposals for new and renewal projects at least six months prior to the project start date. For renewal projects, this is especially essential to insure continued funding without any interruption.

    3. Regents

      Items for Regental approval (see PPM 150-2, paragraph III.A.) have specific time requirements for review and processing at the campus level and within Systemwide Administration offices prior to presentation to the Regents' Committee on Educational Policy. Therefore, the following requirements and deadlines must be observed.

      1. A proposed Regents' Item should be completed by the Principal Investigator according the format of Exhibit A.

      2. The Regents' Item is to be forwarded to the Office of Contract and Grant Administration together with the proposal 35 working days prior to the Regents' meeting (see Supplement I for current dates).

      3. When Regental and agency deadlines are both involved, notify the Office of Contract and Grant Administration immediately so special handling can be arranged.

These are the due dates for all proposed Regents' agenda items and related contract and grant proposals to be received in the Office of Contract and Grant Administration (OCGA), Administrative Records, and Systemwide Administration Offices. These dates are final. Strict adherence is necessary because of the lead-time required for review by the OCGA, approval by the Chancellor and coordination and approval within Office of the President.

Questions concerning the submission of these proposals and related agenda items for the General Campus and School of Medicine should be directed to OCGA, extension 43330, or to extension 44570 for Scripps Institution of Oceanography proposals.
