Submitting to Sponsored Programs
Pre-Proposal/White Paper/Letter of Intent with Required Institutional Signature
Some sponsors require a pre-proposal as part of the proposal review process. Pre-proposals that require an institutional signature are submitted through OR-Sponsored Programs. These do not require a data sheet. Please include the following information to our office:
- Sponsor due date
- Principal Investigator name
- Department contact person
- Administering unit
- Project title
Please send your completed proposal packet to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your file is too large to send using your campus email account, please use the system to send your proposal to Sponsored Programs. A complete proposal package submitted to OR-Sponsored Programs will contain the following:
- A complete copy of the proposal, to include, at a minimum:
- Final scope of work (a draft may be submitted to Sponsored Programs with the final scope of work provided to Sponsored Programs prior to proposal submission to Sponsor)
In addition, you should include, if applicable:
- A copy of the sponsor’s guidelines
- Financial Disclosure Forms
- Additional documentation: PI exception request, limited submission selectee documentation, etc.
- Important addresses, email addresses, phone numbers or contacts for Sponsor and any Subcontractors
- Letters of Support for cost share commitments in the proposal
When Sponsored Programs receives your proposal package, you will be assigned a proposal analyst, and will receive further information regarding your proposal via email. For more information about what the analyst assigned to your project will be checking for when reviewing your proposal, please visit Proposal Review.
For proposals to receive a full review by OR-Sponsored Programs, they must be received 5 business days prior to requested return/submission date.
If you are in the School of Medicine or the School of Veterinary Medicine, the Dean will need to approve your proposal before it can be submitted to OR-Sponsored Programs. For information about your Dean’s suggested deadlines, you should contact your Dean’s office.
