The OSP has compiled this list to provide a centralized location on our website for UAB forms used in the proposal process, for sponsored projects and for the administration and management of awards. The completion and maintenance of forms play an important role in compliance issues and ensures that actions or activities which require approval(s) have the appropriate signature(s) to indicate that approval. Forms also ensure that UAB internal guidelines and procedures are followed and provide an audit trail should the need arise.

Attention! Download the UAB Extramural Support Checklist! You may need to update your Adobe Reader; it is free.
The UAB forms available from this page are in a file type known as PDF (portable document format). To view, fill in, and print them, you must have the Acrobat Reader--a freeware program--installed on your computer. To get the reader from the Adobe Home Page, bookmark this page, then follow this link to download the Acrobat Reader. Most of these forms are interactive. That is, you can fill in much of the information from your web browser. (Instructions for filling in forms online) Signatures and dates cannot be entered on the online forms. To save partially completed forms, you can purchase the full Adobe Acrobat package (not just the free reader).
Instructions for Filling in Acrobat Forms
On the UAB internal forms and the PHS 398 remote forms, you can type in the information on your browser, print the form by using the Acrobat print command, and then fill in the remaining blanks (e.g., signatures and dates). If a field can be filled in from the browser, the cursor will change when the mouse pointer passes over it. It becomes a text-input cursor for text fields or a pointer for checkbox fields. After the look of the cursor changes, click the mouse, then type in the information you wish to enter in a text field, or click the mouse to check and uncheck boxes. You can use the mouse to move between fields. Or you can use the Tab key to move to the next field, and Shift + Tab to move to the previous field.
