NOTICE OF INTENT
TO DEVELOP A PROPOSAL FOR EXTERNAL FUNDING

(Use of this Form is Required Effective January 1, 2004)


NOTE: Submission of a completed “Notice of Intent” (NOI) is required before a proposal will be submitted to a funding agency. It should be submitted as soon as the faculty member makes the decision to develop the proposal, or as quickly as possible thereafter. This is a non-binding notification for the purpose of reserving time and services of OSP and other University offices required to review the proposal. It is understood that information in the NOI may change and/or that a full proposal may not result. OSP will use NOI information to help the applicant ensure that the proposal meets University requirements, is responsive to the sponsoring agency’s guidelines, and is submitted by the deadline. Only under exceptional circumstances will this policy be waived. Waiver requests must be submitted in writing and approved by the Provost. 

Sponsoring Agency Deadline Date(s):

(Note: If not previously established, this date should be ten working days prior to the sponsoring agency's deadline.)
