Prior to submission of the PIAF document, please review SMU Policy 10.1 for the responsibilities of the PI / PD. The proposal process begins with notifying the assigned GMS of your intent to propose 10 business days prior to the submission deadline or the date you plan to submit with a PIAF, FCOI Disclosure, budget, budget justification, and Statement of Work (SOW). Grant access to the complete proposal to the GMS at least four (4) business days prior to the agency submission deadline or the date you plan to submit. The PIAF will be routed for validation signatures via DocuSign prior to final submission to the funding agency. For more details regarding the submission process, refer to the Research Handbook.
For NSF and NIH submissions, ORGS requires PIs to submit NSF proposals through Fastlane and NIH proposals through Grants.gov.
