Submitting a proposal involves planning ahead of time on a variety of issues pertaining to the proposal. You must let your Sponsored Research Coordinator (SPC)/ Departmental Business Administrator (DBA) know as soon as you are thinking of submitting a proposal. SPC/DBAs are here to help you build a good proposal. They will work with you throughout the proposal submission process and will act as your liaison with all internal and external partners and the Research Office (RO).
Once you let the SPC/DBA know your intent to submit a proposal, the SPC/DBA will request some information via the CANR Proposal Determination and Tracking Worksheet and determine whether the proposal will be a Delegated Authority (DA) proposal or whether it will go through the Research Office (RO).
