Per UAB policy all proposals for extramurally sponsored funding are to be reviewed by the OSP prior to submission to the sponsor. See the OSP Review Plan to know and understand the deadlines for proposal submission to the OSP. Please remember when you are preparing your submission that the UAB OSP’s posted business hours are 8 to 5. In order to begin this process, you will need to complete a UAB Extramural Checklist and Responsible Parties List (RPL) and route it to OSP by email at email@example.com. The corresponding electronic application package for either the Complete or Limited review must be in either the OSP Drop Box or in the ASSIST portal. If in the rare occasions for a paper submission, this application would need to accompany the Extramural Checklist to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your application reaches OSP, it will be entered into the IRAP system and assigned to an officer who will assist you in processing your application.
Below you will find links to a few documents on the OSP website that you and your support staff will find informative. In addition to the information on the website, OSP officers are always willing to provide training and guidance for an individual or in a group setting. Contact your OSP officer to determine the best training approach and for scheduling.
