Sponsored Programs Administration in the time of Coronovirus
Q: Will ORSP and OSPAN remain open?
A: Yes. It is possible that we will all be working remotely, but we plan to be available via email and Skype. If you do not receive an answer when calling, please leave a voicemail. All ORSP and OSPAN employees have access to their voicemail via email.
Q: Will I still be able to submit my grant proposal?
A: Yes. At this time all grant submission portals are up and running. TRACKS is accessible via the internet.
Q: Do the internal grant proposal deadlines still apply?
A: Yes. We ask that you abide by the 7 business day deadline for draft proposals. Work closely with your OSPAN administrator to assist in meeting this deadline.
We also ask that final grant applications be received by ORSP 72 hours (3 business days) before the published funding agency deadline. This extra day will allow ORSP plenty of time to coordinate with our investigators and OSPAN to ensure that our grant proposals are in the best shape possible for submission.
Q: Who can I contact if I have an urgent question about a grant proposal?
A: Please get in touch with your assigned ORSP or OSPAN representatives via e-mail, skype, or voicemail.
