Proposal Approval & Submission to Sponsor

InfoEd Electronic Proposal Routing System and Review Dashboard

UVM uses the InfoEd Electronic Proposal Routing System to route proposals to Chairs and Deans for internal approvals.  The Principal Investigator is responsible for uploading the proposal into InfoEd and for starting the electronic routing process.  The Principal Investigator is also responsible for monitoring  the routing progress to ensure it is completed in tme to meet SPA's internal submission deadlines.

Dean, Director and Department Chair review and approval

Approval is needed from the Deans, Directors and Department Chairs of any department with personnel listed on the budget or with stated cost sharing or other resource commitments. 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.

  • faculty effort commitments
  • budget and budget justification
  • cost sharing commitments
  • research plan
  • facilities and resources
  • other proposal components

SPA Review and Approval - UVM Authorized Signature

After all required Deans, Directors and Department Chairs have approved the 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 to the sponsor.

Submission to Sponsor

Proposal submission to the sponsor is the responsibility of the Principal Investigator. Exceptions to this long standing policy are for those proposals for which the sponsor requires SPA to electronically submit the proposal via the sponsor's proposal submission mechanism.
