Five-Day Deadline for Proposal Submission
Electronic proposal submission can be a complex endeavor. It is the responsibility of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to ensure that all proposals conform to College, Research Foundation, CUNY, and sponsor guidelines and policies. Over the past year, there have been several instances of late and incomplete proposals that have prompted serious concerns from Department Chairs, School Deans, and inquiries from senior administrators in the College. In response to these concerns and inquiries and in order to ensure that proposals on behalf of Lehman College are submitted in a timely way and with proper departmental, School, and College review, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is proposing a five business day internal deadline for the receipt of the complete and final proposal approved by Department and Dean through Cayuse. Proposals that are not received by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs in Cayuse five business days before the deadline may not be submitted to the sponsor. This proposed policy would apply to all external and Professional Staff Congress (PSC-CUNY) sponsors and funding. This policy was effective as of January 1, 2012.
