Principal Investigators do not have the authority to submit proposals on their own. Investigators should contact their department/unit research administrator as soon as they learn of a funding opportunity. This will ensure that there is sufficient time to develop an appropriate budget, complete all sponsor-required forms, and certifications and secure all required approvals.
