Upcoming Winter Break Closures: Bureau of Educational Research and Sponsored Programs Administration

by Jane Schingel ( / Dec 20, 2017

Winter Break office closures will impact submission timelines for external research proposals having deadlines between December 20, 2017 and January 4, 2018. We ask faculty and researchers to please plan accordingly.

The Bureau of Educational Research and the Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) offices will close the afternoon of Friday, December 22, 2017 and re-open on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.

All proposals having a sponsor due date between December 15, 2017 and January 4, 2018 should be submitted to the Bureau as soon as possible to allow sufficient time for submission set-up, post-production and submission to campus. The staff at SPA pre-award intend to submit proposals due on December 20, 2017, through January 4, 2018, on or before December 20, 2017, and to use December 21 - December 22 for resubmission of proposals presenting fatal errors within sponsor submission systems.

College faculty and researchers who anticipate proposal submissions with due dates on or before January 6, 2018 are encouraged to communicate with Jane Schingel ( or 244-3564) as soon as possible to discuss individual submission needs.
