Pre-Award Support

Develop a Submission Plan

  • Timeline preparation/management
  • Statistical and other writing consultations
  • Think Tank review of specific aims
  • Mock Review of research proposal

Budget Preparation and Routing

  • Prepare budget and justification
  • Ensure compliance with funding agency guidelines
  • Prepare documents required by Sponsored Projects
  • Route budget, justification and other documents requiring institutional review/approval  in UAccess Research

The Office of Nursing Research is responsible for coordination of institutional approval (routing) of the proposal. ONR will initiate the routing and keep the PI informed of any matters requiring attention. The application face page (if applicable), abstract, budget and justification are required for routing. Routing needs to be completed a minimum of eight working days before the grant submission deadline.

If the proposal involves UA investigators outside the College of Nursing, please allow for additional time to route. Many departments and colleges have internal routing processes which can add significantly to the time it takes to obtain signatures.

NOTE: Approval is not required for Investigators at other universities. ONR is not responsible for obtaining approval from other universities.

At Sponsored Projects, the proposal is reviewed for adherence to financial guidelines, accuracy of the budget and compliance with University policies. The Sponsored Projects pre-award official is the signatory for the University of Arizona and proposals cannot be submitted for external funding without this signature/approval.

Proposals submitted to intramural funding sources (i.e. Vice President for Research, TRIFF, all UA academic units) or through the University of Arizona Foundation need to be routed within the College of Nursing (CON) using the CON Proposal Routing Sheet. Contact the Office of Nursing Research for further information.

  • Submit final documents to ONR

  • Review checklist

     
  • PI and ONR review application package

    The Principal Investigator is responsible for final review and content approval of the proposal. This review normally takes place in Office of Nursing Research, to allow us to assist you PIs with navigation and provide timely processing of the proposal submission. The Office of Nursing Research then coordinates the submission of the proposal to the funding agency.

At Sponsored Projects, the proposal is reviewed for adherence to guidelines, accuracy of the budget, and compliance with University policies. The Sponsored Projects pre-award official is the signatory for the University of Arizona and proposals cannot be submitted for external funding without this signature.
