requires a minimum of three (3) business days to review a proposal
in order to insure successful submission prior to sponsor deadline.
Instructions/Guidelines: If the proposal is being submitted
to a non-federal agency or to a special "one-time
project" within a federal agency, please send SAM the application instructions three
(3) days in advance of your proposal. This is particularly important for foundations,
professional societies, smaller special interest organizations, industry programs,
or for RFP's. Receiving the information in advance will enable SAM to review such things
as allowable overhead rates, special restrictions, unusual contract terms, and
other unique requirements and to ask any questions prior to proposal submission. This
will allow for a more speedy processing of the proposal.
If USC is to be a subcontractor to another entity, a proposal
must be submitted through the Office of Sponsored Awards Management
to the proposed grantor. Guidelines from the original funding
agency must be followed.
