Research Proposal, Submission, and Award Management FAQs from Alex Loukas

March 16, 2020

We’ve received communication from the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) regarding proposal submission and award management issues that may arise in relation to COVID-19. I’m sending this to you for distribution to faculty/staff as necessary. In addition to the OSP FAQ page, I’m including links to the Vice President of Research IRB FAQ pages that are relevant for researchers. These links also are posted on our College COVID-19 page. 

  1. OSP COVID-19 FAQ page: provides information about new submissions and also includes links to NIH and NSF FAQs regarding active funded research and COVID-19.
  2. VPR COVID-19 FAQ page: provides information on research and research policy in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak.
  3. IRB COVID-19 FAQ page: provides information about human subjects research and how to handle changes in active protocols.
