For Proposals due between Thursday, October 12, 2017 - Friday, November 10, 2017

OSPA is experiencing numerous proposal deadlines in the next few weeks including, the NIH R15 and R03 series as well as several NSF deadlines.  In an effort to ensure the successful submission of proposals submitted during this time period, we are asking for your cooperation.

Please submit your full proposals at least five (5) business days prior to the submission date.  This includes the signed OSPA Checklist, OSPA budget and budget justification, the full application and any required compliance documents.  

Any proposals received outside of the five (5) business day deadline will be reviewed and submitted if time allows.  If you have a proposal due at this time and are not already working with OSPA, please contact our office as soon as possible. Workspace

Effective December 31, 2017, will officially retire the legacy PDF application package as a method to apply for a federal grant.  Applicants will be required to submit proposals through a standard federal grants application process on called Workspace. Workspace is a shared, online environment designed to make applying for a federal grant as convenient as possible.  Forms can be completed within a web browser or downloaded individually and uploaded into Workspace.  PIs familiar with NIH ASSIST and NSF Fastlane will find the Workspace application comparable to those systems. 

Beginning September 1, 2017, all proposals submitted through that allow the use of Workspace must be submitted via that system.  The funding opportunity announcement will indicate whether Workspace can be used for a particular funding opportunity.  OSPA will no longer support other submission methods for those proposals. Please see the full announcement here.
