Step 5: Submit your Proposal
How to Submit
- At least two weeks before your proposal is due – email your proposal draft and RFP to Judy McShannon who will provide a review of your proposal.
- At least a one week before your proposal is due – complete your routing sheet and forward for signatures.
- At least one working day (8:00 a.m.) before your proposal is due – release for review and electronic submission.
- The Research Office will review your proposal to ensure compliance with funding agency requirements and NMT policies and submit your proposal to the funding agency.
- Make yourself available to work with the Research Office to address all proposal requirements and successfully submit your proposal.
- Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the PI to get the proposal submitted. Work with the NMT Research Office to make this happen smoothly. While NMT is committed to supporting all PIs in the submission of their proposals, proposals submitted the day they are due will not be reviewed and may not be submitted.
