INTERNAL DEADLINE for Submitting Proposals - Three Business Days
The Office of Sponsored Awards Management (SAM) is committed to assuring the timely submission of complete, accurate and excellent proposals. To achieve this, it is critical that SAM receive proposals in sufficient time to provide adequate review and allow for the additional processing time associated with electronic submissions systems (e.g. Grants.gov). Interfacing with these electronic systems has improved many aspects of grants administration, but SAM is encountering increased challenges related to a last minute rush (literally) of proposals submitted with the assumption that only "pressing a button" is required to complete the submission process. This assumption has resulted in numerous "near misses" and one large proposal was rejected for missing the agency deadline by minutes.
