Proposal Compliance Review & Submission

Who will help me submit a proposal?

UNH, like most universities, is comprised of units with varying amounts of experience and/or resources for activities like proposal preparation.   That variation creates a mix of expectations about how and when an investigator interacts with Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) staff to submit a proposal.


SPA has developed guidelines for the review and submission of proposals to serve as a starting point in this continually evolving business environment.


Some pointers that apply to all proposal submissions:

  • Check in with your Grant and Contract Administrator (GCA) well ahead of the deadline to confirm the step-by-step process for submission to the particular sponsor, including registration requirements, if any.
  • Be sure to leave time before the sponsor's deadline to deal with the inevitable "glitches" that will arise.
  • Remember..... in almost all cases, only your GCA can finalize the proposal submission.
