Applying for a Grant/Contract

Internal Routing Form

» PDF Format

Any grant proposal which involves Salisbury University personnel in any way must be approved by the administration of the University prior to submission to the funding agency by completing the Internal Review Form for Contracts and Grant Proposals.

The Project Director is responsible for securing the IRF signatures of the Chair and Dean. The Dean of GSR will then present the project along with the IRF to the VP Administration and Finance for signature. Once the IRF has been signed, the proposal along with the IRF is submitted to the Provost for final approval and signature. The GSR will normally be listed as the point of contact for award negotiations.

Project Directors should be aware that signature of any of the above parties on the IRF form constitutes only approval to submit the proposal to the funding agency. It does not commit the University to conducting the project if and when the proposal is approved.
