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 and some letters of intent (criteria is described in Step 3 of the Proposal Process) and is due to the OSP, with your proposal, at least five business days ahead of the sponsor's deadline.
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.
