A Plea for Your Experience in Enforcing Grant Submission Deadline s McCann, John 01 Mar 2004 14:14 EST

Our business office is currently in the process of developing a policy to
enforce lead time requirements for approval signatures which would - in
effect - lengthen our internal grants approval process and impose a grants
submission deadline.  I think such deadlines are unenforcable and
undesirable.  The job of our grants office is to facilitate grants
submission, not impose barriers - and PIs have major time investments in
grant proposals.  While we specify that PIs should allow at least seven
working days for internal reviews - and we yelp at late submissions - we
always submit viable proposals.

I know that the list has discussed this subject in the past, and I've found
those e-mails, but I'd really appreciate a large number of you briefly
answering these three questions and providing the names of your

1.  Does your institution enforce grants submissions deadlines?

2.  Why or why not?

Thank you........
