Streamlining Proposal Reviews

Notes and supporting attachments help all approvers (RAS, Department Heads, Assistant Deans) understand the context for proposal review and allow faster approvals. Proposal reviews will be more streamlined if:

  • Aggregators attach background documents to the proposal before routing. Examples: 

    • Late proposal waivers
    • Commitments on cost-sharing, underrecovery
    • Background emails from sponsor, RAS Representative, KC-help, etc.
    • Solicitation
