SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION
All applications require institutional review and approval. OSP officers review and approve applications on behalf of the UAB. In order to begin this process, you will need to complete a UAB Extramural Checklist and route it to OSP (AB 1170). The Conflict of Interest Review Board will also require that you file your application with their office. Once your application reaches OSP, it will be entered into the OSP system and assigned to an officer who will assist you in processing your application.
Electronic application draft application must be uploaded to the OSP drop box at least seven (7) business days prior to the sponsor deadline. Final applications must be uploaded at least three (3) business days prior to the sponsor deadline. Applications will not be reviewed until a file is uploaded to the OSP drop box and the UAB Extramural Checklist is received. For detailed instructions on uploading your file, view the OSP Drop Box Instructions.
Paper draft applications are due to OSP three (3) business days prior to the sponsor deadline. The OSP officer will review the application and submit required changes to the PI’s office. Once the final application is complete, the PI’s office is required to send a copy to OSP. OSP prefers to receive larger files via email.
