Proposal Processing Form


PPF Button


PLEASE NOTE: DER is currently over capacity for quality proposal preparation. So due to the current high volume of research proposals, if your research proposal has a deadline on or before Sept. 1, 2019, your proposal processing form will be sent to the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) for preparation. They are assisting us during this high-volume time and will reach out to you. if your proposal has a deadline -after- Sept. 1, 2019, DER will assign a research administrator to help you with proposal peraration. We will reach out to you as quickly as we can, but will likely be at least one week before we can respond. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this busy time.

Thank you!
