UNLV OSP Timeline

Each month, the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) reviews, signs, and submits large numbers of proposals. Numerous administrative requirements exist and proposals must be carefully reviewed for compliance prior to submission. Consequently, in order to provide the best possible service and ensure timely submission, OSP has the following deadlines for proposal processing. The deadlines depend upon the following complicating factors:

  • Direct costs greater than $1M/year
  • Cost sharing
  • External Collaborators/Sub-awards
  • Requires additional space
  • Involves a foreign sponsor
