Grant and Contract Guidelines
* NEW IMPORTANT - PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE PROCEDURES
Guidelines to facilitate the submittal of proposals and to maximize the
support provided by our grants and contracts office.
All grants and contract documents must be compiled and ready for approval at least FIVE (5) business days in advance of the deadline. It will generally take several days of processing time for grant and contract approval, and more time if other campus departments/units or other institutions will be involved.
2. Faculty should attach these forms to the proposal, along with an RFP (request for proposal) or PA (program announcement) UNLESS it is an unsolicited, R01 NIH application.
3. List Tammy Berry as the authorized representative or person of contact regarding the application.
4. Take all applications to Tammy Berry in A301R.
The Office of Research and Graduate Studies provides support for the faculty and staff of the College of Veterinary Medicine in their efforts to obtain external funding for research and other sponsored projects, while ensuring compliance with UT policy, sponsor policy, and applicable law. A variety of services are available to assist our faculty and staff.

A signed Permission to Apply for External Funding (routing form), draft proposal, and final budget are due to the Office 5 business days prior to the submission deadline. A final proposal is due 3 business days prior to submission. If your proposal is an electronic submission (ie. grants.gov) involving multiple campus' or outside universities, additional time for review is required.
