Proposal Submission

Updated March 17, 2020

Please note that as of the most recent update of this page, Miami University is not officially closed. Therefore, anything in the following guidance that pertains strictly to official closures does not apply to Miami at this time.

Miami University

PIs should continue to use Cayuse to route proposals. They should also continue to notify their proposal consultant that a Cayuse proposal is ready for their review prior to submitting the proposal for routing.

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Per NOT-OD-20-082:

When delays occur because the applicant or recipient organization is officially closed or unable to submit grant applications due to the effects of COVID-19, the NIH will consider accepting applications late, on a case-by-case basis, in accordance with the NIH Grants Policy Statement, Section 2.3.9, under the following circumstances:

  • Institutions must submit applications or reports as soon as possible after reopening or resuming operations so that grant applications can be submitted, not to exceed the number of days the institution was officially closed or unable to submit grant applications.
  • Institutions must submit a cover letter with the applications with enough detail about the delay so that NIH staff can make a determination whether circumstances justify accepting the application late.
  • Institutions need not request advance permission to submit late due to this declared emergency.

Per NOT-OD-20-83:

The NIH will consider accepting applications late, on a case-by-case basis.

Recipients must submit a cover letter with the application, outlining the fact that the institution is closed due to effects of COVID-19 so that NIH staff can document the delay.

Recipients need not request advance permission to submit late due to a public health emergency-related delay.

National Science Foundation (NSF)

Researchers or sponsored projects office staff from organizations that have been affected and are unable to meet stated NSF deadlines should contact the cognizant NSF program office to discuss the issue. NSF will consider extensions to the submission deadline on a case-by-case basis (and, in a few cases, on a program-by-program basis), understanding that it may be particularly difficult for individuals impacted to contact NSF. See NSF PAPPG Chapter I.F for additional information on procedures for submitting such requests.
