Applicability

All proposals for instruction, research, public service, scholarly relationships, or creative or other academic projects that are submitted to organizations outside ASU and are subject to regulatory or sponsor requirements, except:

  1. proposals and applications for student financial aid without sponsor reporting or deliverables
  2. procurement of supplies and services through Purchasing and Business Services

Policy

[horizontal rule]

All proposals for external sponsored support that are subject to regulatory or sponsor restrictions and that involve a commitment of university resources must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate academic and administrative unit officials prior to submission to sponsors.

If external proposals are submitted without proper review and approvals prior to submission, any resulting award acceptance is dependent upon completion of the standard internal approval process.

For more information on how RSP policies are implemented during each phase of a project, see the ORSPA Web site.
