Before ORSP can formally submit the budget to a funding agency, we first need to get the TU internal approvals in place. For each proposal submission, internal routing forms must be completed and signed by the appropriate persons. Someone in the Pre-Award office will usually pre-populate these forms for the investigator with the applicable information. These forms are required for every proposal and should be internally routed along with the final budget prior to proposal submission. The principal investigator, co-investigators, and chairs/deans for each investigator must answer specific project-related questions and sign the forms.
After the Internal Approval Forms have been completed and signed by the PI(s), chair(s) and dean(s), the forms should be delivered or scanned in color and e-mailed to Adrienne Blalack or Lori Watts in the Pre-Award office, who will obtain the remaining signatures.
