The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is responsible for reviewing all grant, cooperative agreement, and contract proposals to ensure they are consistent with University policies and procedures and can be accepted if an award is made. OSP has established policies and procedures that facilitate the submission of proposals in an expeditious manner while also assuring that the University meets all federal mandates and assurances. A completed proposal, with all required attachments, must be fully routed with all approvals at least 5 business days prior to the Sponsor Deadline. If the University is not the Prime recipient, the deadline should be adjusted accordingly.
Cayuse SP (https://www.memphis.edu/rsp/cayuse/index.php) is used to submit and route a proposal to the Office of sponsored Programs (OSP). All required documents are uploaded to the electronic system.
University will begin proposal review once a Cayuse proposal has been fully routed with all approvals and minimum required documents.
To ensure your proposal is submitted to the sponsor by the deadline, please allow at least 5 business days after routing for review by the OSP staff. Additionally, the OSP staff should receive the final (ready to be submitted with no updates required) proposal at least two (2) days prior to the submission deadline.
The proposal will be reviewed for compliance with sponsor guidelines and university policies, proper order format, and consistency of information.
The proposal will be submitted per sponsor specifications by the OSP staff. The PI/PD will be notified when the proposal is submitted.
