Faculty members are urged to submit proposals at least 3-5 business days prior to agency deadlines. Additional time must be allowed for RSP to provide a full complement of services, including budget development assistance, review, signature, duplication, and transmission of the proposal.
All applicants are reminded that the agency deadline must be clearly indicated on the Internal Routing Form (IRF) (Word), including the date and type of deadline (postmark or receipt). If there is no definite deadline, please give a target date for receipt by, or mailing to, the agency.
There are numerous peak agency deadlines throughout the year. Please keep in mind that proposals received in advance of these dates will receive precedence over those received at the last possible minute before a deadline.
