Proposal Routing Form Policy

Proposal Routing and Approval Form (a.k.a. Routing Form or PRAF): This form is to be completed by the PI/PD and routed with a copy of the full proposal to appropriate administrative personnel for an internal review and approval recommendation by signature prior to submission. A designated person in RSP is the last to sign this form. Signatures are required from the Dean and Department Head for the Primary PI/PD and all Co-PI/PDs. Additional signatures (i.e. Facilities Planning, Human Subjects, etc.) may be required. Be aware of signatories’ travel and other absences that may interfere in collecting signatures on time.
