Reviews and Approvals

Investigators are encouraged to contact their Grant Coordinator that they plan to respond to a funding opportunity and provide information about the funding program. Grant Coordinators will assist in proposal preparation and submission process.

After review and approval, all proposals are submitted by Research Services on behalf of the Georgia Southern University Research and Service Foundation. As the Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR), the Executive Director must approve all proposals before they are submitted to external funding agencies.

  1. The routing and approval process begins five (5) business days prior to the sponsor’s submission deadline, with the PI submitting a complete proposal and budget through the Cloud Express electronic research administration (eRA) system. Please contact your grant coordinator for further information.
  2. PIs are encouraged to contact the department chair and/or dean as early as possible, particularly when proposals include release time, additional space, renovations, or other resources that must be approved by the department, college or university.
  3. All project investigators must complete the Financial Conflict of Interest Training (FCOI) and screening disclosure. Proposals will not be submitted until the FCOI and screening disclosure are complete.
