Prepare and Submit Formal Proposal
Most of the proposals are on-line forms now and are submitted electronically, so it might be a good idea to revamp this whole section. As an example, the Internal Approval Form is the eIAF and is certified (not “signed”) and it’s routed through myUK. Also, it is important to include that it must be completed 10 days before the due date to the sponsor to meet the college deadline, and not less than 3 business days to OSPA before the due date. Maybe even have a link here to the OSAP website.
