This university policy has been revised to reflect decentralization of handling grant and contract proposals. College deans and certain other University officials are authorized to sign specific types of grant and contract proposals. A list of those authorized to approve proposals is available in the Office of the University Attorney and the Office of Research. In addition, proposals that would impede the elimination of racial duality in the University no longer require advance approval of the President. The Proposal Approval Process Chart and the Internal Processing Form have been deleted.
