Proposal Development

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) has revamped its current databases and proposal transmission process. Pre, post-award, and account set-up details are provided below.

1.  Pre-award functions to perform

If you have Adobe Acrobat Pro, use these refillable forms: Forms #1, #2,#3 which supersedes all prior ones and should be used when processing your proposals through the ASU bureaucracy for approval prior to proposal submissions. If you have Adobe Acrobat Reader, use these forms: Forms #1, #2, & #3. Please note the following changes: All forms must be completed, approved by your Chairperson, Dean, and Vice President as appropriate, and attached to your completed proposal and budget. To expedite the process, electronic signatures are acceptable on forms.

After the chairperson and dean sign the form acknowledging review and approval, we encourage you to scan documents to create a pdf file and e-mail completed forms, proposal, and budget to for further processing. Submit to ORSP 2 weeks before deadline date.

For proposals emanating from the Center for Nanobiotechnology and ASU Life Sciences Research, substitute Form #1A for Form #1. The participating faculty member's chairpersons, dean, and vice president are required to review and approve prior to processing through ORSP.
