Beginning Jan. 22, the Office of Research will require that investigators applying for sponsored projects submit all proposal documents required for review through ARGIS at least five (5) business days before they are due to a funding agency. The Office of Research will not submit proposals that miss the 5-day deadline without authorization of the Associate Vice President for Research and the Associate Dean for Research of your college. It is the policy of UCF that all sponsored project proposals be submitted through ORC. You can read the full UCF policy on the ORC 5-day rule here.

ARGIS, the software system that is used to submit forms now, has been updated to accept all necessary forms and still allow access to make changes to the technical portion of proposals up to 48 hours before close of business on the due date.
