College of Science/OSRAA pilot study

The College of Science is participating in a “College Certification Proposal Process” whereby the College denotes in the Cayuse record that it certifies the proposal and thus OSRAA gives the proposal a limited review. The Pilot period is 3/1/2020 – 8/31/2020 and limited to only NSF proposals (per COS request). The college can choose to either certify a proposal or request a full OSRRA review, which I would most likely do on large complex proposals.
