At this stage of the sponsored project lifecycle, you will need to:
For all proposals, letters of intent, pre-proposals, subaward commitments and unfunded research-related agreements and contracts, OSP will facilitate the Provost’s review and signature as the contract ultimately binds Seattle University with an external entity.
A Proposal Transmittal Form is required for all full proposals. It is required for all letters of intent and pre-proposals ("pre-applications") when one or more of these is true:
If a PTF is required at the pre-application stage, it will be required again at the full proposal stage if any significant changes have occurred within the budget, personnel, or scope of the project.
If the pre-application does not meet any of the above qualifications, the PTF is only required at the full proposal stage. However, OSP must receive a final copy of the submitted pre-application.
The PI should contact OSP at the pre-application stage for OSP to determine the necessity of a PTF. If a letter of intent, pre-proposal, subaward commitment, or proposal is submitted without a PTF, and thus without institutional reviews and approvals, the University holds the right to decline the grant or contract if awarded. A PTF will be required after the fact for any proposal submitted without one.
Applying for external funding is a collaboration between the principal investigator/project director and their department/college, the OSP, and the Office of the Provost. Depending on the nature of the proposal, the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations and/or the Office of the Controller may be involved.
