Proposal Submission

OSP Proposal Submission Policy

Applicants are strongly encouraged to notify OSP as soon as they are reasonably certain that they will be submitting a proposal to an external sponsor. 
Proposals to external sponsors through OSP are required to meet the below internal proposal deadlines and should be in complete, or final, format and fully approved through Cayuse SP.

  • Single Institution Submission (Montclair State University only) – a minimum of three (3) business days advance notice are required for review, approval, and submission of completed applications.
  • Multi-Institution Submission (Montclair State University and one or more domestic collaborators)— a minimum of seven (7) business days advance notice are required for review, approval and submission of completed applications.
  • International Collaborations (Montclair State University and one or more international collaborators)— a minimum of ten (10) business days advance notice are required for review, approval and submission of completed applications.

Tracking Time and Effort

A PI’s time and effort picture is a snapshot in time and can easily change from one day to another. For example, a proposal that was submitted six months ago may be funded tomorrow and therefore change the PI’s time and effort picture.  Consequently, to assist PI’s in tracking their committed time and effort on active sponsored awards, OSP has developed a Time and Effort Map (T&E Map).
