To that end, proposals are routed to each responsible Dean, Director and Department Chair for review and approval of the following components, consistent with UVM's Roles and Responsibilities in Sponsored Projects. Deans, Directors and Department Chairs perform thier review and approval in the InfoEd Review Dashboard.

proposal, SPA performs their review of the final version of the
proposal. SPA then provides the UVM Authorized Signature and the the
Principal Investigator is then permitted to submit the signed proposal
