Timeline for Submission of Proposals to Sponsored Projects Office (OR)

The Sponsored Projects Office (SPO) works diligently to provide thorough reviews of all proposals as well as prompt research award administration for all academic departments and ORUs. We are proud of our researchers and the rising prominence of our campus as a premier research institution. However, SPO’s resources are limited. In order to keep up with our campus’s increasing volume of research activity, it is critical that all principal investigators and departmental contract and grant staff do their utmost to submit proposals to SPO for review at least seven business days before the deadline. 
Over the past year, we have been seeing an increasing number of proposals coming into SPO for review with far fewer than seven business days before the deadline. This severely limits the ability of the SPO staff to review proposals completely and to provide the broad range of other research administration services that we have all grown to depend on. If this continues, we will very likely have to implement policy changes to ensure that the SPO workload is manageable and that all researchers on campus have access to SPO services. 
Please see the SPO website for details about the proposal submission timeline.

UCSB Misconduct Policy

The UCSB Research Misconduct Policy has been revised to comply with the latest federal sponsor requirements and to reflect UCSB’s ongoing commitment to the highest standards of intellectual honesty and integrity. The revised policy outlines expectations for the ethical behavior of all university personnel involved in research and provides procedures for addressing allegations of research misconduct. The revised policy can be found on the Research Misconduct page of the Office of Research website.
