Proposal FAQs

To help facilitate the proposal review process, OSP would like to remind faculty and departments that the following documents are required in order for OSP to review, approve and submit a proposal:

  1. A completed PD record including Regulatory Form
  2. Final and complete grant application
  3. Cost Sharing Approval (if applicable)
  4. Subrecipient documentation (if applicable)

A completed PD record with Regulatory Form and other relevant documents must accompany each (i.e. new, revised, renewal, supplementary, continuation) proposal routed to your OSP Team.  Once all materials are received, OSP will review the entire final proposal package.  Please remember that the PD record must be routed and approved by the PI, departmental approver and all other applicable individuals whose approval is required, as this provides certification that the information contained in the proposal and on the Regulatory Form is accurate, complete and in compliance with Yale University and sponsor policies.  OSP is not authorized to submit proposals to external sponsors without the agreed to approvals in the PD route.

OSP requires five (5) working days to review your grant application. There are a large number of applications flowing through our office daily. The five day requirement allows us to review your application properly for compliance and other administrative issues, and allows for time needed to resolve any potential problems.
