Once we are aware that you will be submitting a proposal, we provide you with a timeline specific to your proposal. The UCSB Office of Research (OR) requires that we, as the administering department, submit a complete packet of the proposal to them a minimum of seven (7) full business days prior to the sponsor’s deadline, at which point a draft of all proposal documents should be included. The budget and budget justification should be in final form. For more details, please visit our Proposal Preparation page.
