Submit a request to the Research Administration team. Our staff assists Faculty, Research Associates and Assistants, Graduate students, and staff in the College of Engineering with the following pre-award proposal functions:
For assistance with any of these pre-award items, please send us a Request for Services via this link or by clicking the "Request for Services" button on the right-hand sidebar.
To make sure every request gets the full attention it deserves, please adhere to the following deadline policies when you contact us:
Three weeks from sponsor deadline is optimal notice, especially for complex projects.
Nine business days before sponsor deadline is the minimum required notice for COE Research Administration support assistance. Requests made eight or fewer business days before sponsor deadline will be accommodated at the discretion of Proposal Support grant coordinators, and based on work-flow availability.
Three business days before sponsor deadline is the amount of time it takes OSRAA to review a proposal. OSRAA asks PIs to route proposals through Cayuse earlier (one full week before sponsor deadline) to allow time for departmental approvals and any corrections that may arise in the review process.
Same-day to sponsor requests for service will not be accommodated under any circumstances.
1) Offices are closed on University holidays, please keep in mind when requesting assistance.
2) Our peak submission periods are:
3) Collaborative proposals and subcontracts involve many moving pieces. If you are involved in one, and Oregon State is not the lead university, you must adhere to the lead university's deadline. For example, if the proposal is due to the primary funding agency on September 15, and the subcontracting university needs it by September 1 to route through their central award administration for approval, you should contact our team on August 19. Please work closely with your collaborators to determine any scheduling needs on their end, and keep COE Research Administration policies in mind.
