All grant applications must be sent to the Office of Research Administration (ORA) for review and submission approval 7 business days prior to the grant application's sponsor deadline. In other words, a grant application will need to be routed in the SPS system and reach the Pending Central Approval (PCA) state 7 business days before the sponsor deadline to meet this guideline. When a grant application must be provided late to the ORA office, a waiver will be needed in order to proceed with an ORA review for submission approval.
