Submitting Your Proposal
Submitting Proposals for Extramural Funding
It is the policy of the University of California that faculty or other academic employees who receive any part of their salary through the University, or whose activities use any University resources or facilities, must submit their proposals through the appropriate local contracts and grants office. The Office of Research, Sponsored Programs serves in that capacity at the University of California, Davis and is the Davis Campus office delegated to accept or execute extramurally sponsored awards on behalf of the Regents of the University of California.
The Office of Research, Sponsored Programs has been entrusted with the authority, on behalf of the Davis campus and the University of California, to certify that proposals are consistent with University policies and regulations. The Office of Research, Sponsored Programs also has the responsibility to ensure that promises made in proposals can be honored and that the grant or contract can be accepted if it is awarded.
