Proposal Submission, Research Laws and Responsibilities

University Policies and Procedures for Proposal Submission 

The electronic routing of proposals takes place though UAccess Research. All proposals, routed UAR proposals and electronic submissions, should be submitted to Sponsored Projects & Contracting Services in FINAL FORM three full business days prior to the funding agency's deadline.  

Please see UA Research Gateway for detailed information on proposal routing and submission. For other questions on how to get started, email or call Erica Ortiz, Manager of Grants and Contracts for SBSRI.

Note that you may be submitting for a limited competition. Limited submissions are funding opportunities where the funder has limited the number of applications from an organization. Selected proposals will need to follow UArizona proposal submission procedures. Some proposals to private foundations require submission and coordination through the University of Arizona Foundation. Download the current UArizona Limited Submission Process PDF for full details on the process.

The UA Office for the Responsible Conduct of Research Click here >>

Education in the responsible conduct of research meets more than just regulatory standards and requirements. The Education and Training division of the University of Arizona Office for the Responsible Conduct of Research holds opportunities for professional development, promotes academic success, and builds environments of excellence within our research enterprise. Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) instruction is required by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Science Foundation (NSF). The RCR office also handles authorship and credit for research findings grievances.

Check the front page News section of SBSRI's website for information about upcoming ORCR workshops throughout the semester.


Reporting of Lobbying Activities Click here >>

The University of Arizona is required by law to report all federal lobbying activities on a quarterly basis to the US Congress, and the UA Office of Federal Relations compiles and files the University's quarterly submission. As a result, all University of Arizona faculty, staff and personnel who have addressed the federal government, including the US Congress, on policy, legislative or funding issues should review the linked information and if necessary report all lobbying to the UA Office of Federal Relations using the form on the linked page.
