All proposals to external sponsors seeking funding for research, service and training purposes must be routed through ORA for review and approval prior to submission to the sponsoring agency. Most proposals require a signature from an authorized official. The authorized officials for sponsored projects at UMD are the Director of ORA and the Pre and Post Award Managers.
Applications submitted without the review and approval by ORA are not considered official submissions and may be administratively withdrawn if the applications are found to be noncompliant with Sponsor, University, State or Federal policies and procedures.
