new rouge system for grants submission. BOB 30 Nov 2000 17:24 EST

How can the University of New Hampshire Center for Non-Lethal TechnoIogy
Innovation Center possibly be asking this group for help with a on-line
application system that allows people to send proposals directly to it and
BYPASS their local grants office???

I cannot find any reference to obtaining approval from one's own
university.  Yet the system asks for explicit dollars and project duration.
The proposal is uploaded to the site directly by the submitter.

For the past two years people on this listserv have been complaining about
private and federal agencies who are bypassing local authorization with
electronic submissions.

Is it the policy of UNH to allow faculty to submit proposals to outside
agencies with out local approval?

At a recent meeting of the FDP, Julie Norris,  Director of Sponsored
Programs at MIT suggested the term "Rogue Systems" for those that did not
involve local grants office approval.  I use that term here.
