The following announcement was recently published in NIH’s Office of Extramural Research “Nexus” newsletter. While the situation described in the article is specific to NIH, it could happen with other agencies’ electronic submission deadlines.
The best way to ensure your application is submitted and received by the deadline is early preparation! Please contact your SDSURF proposal development specialist as soon as you anticipate submitting a proposal and plan to provide all materials to him or her five days in advance of the sponsor deadline.
If you have questions about NIH or other sponsor deadlines or electronic proposal submissions, please contact your SDSURF development specialist or Jennie Amison at firstname.lastname@example.org or 594-4478.
