OSU Routing Process

The process for review and approval
All proposals for external funding of any kind for sponsored projects, activities, and/or programs must be routed (using a routing form) for review and approval/ signature before submission. This includes proposal submission by college sponsored programs offices as well as departments across campus that are not affiliated with an academic college (e.g. Library, Upward Bound, Scholarships and Financial Aid, etc.). Should a proposal be funded, the award documentation must also be routed.

What documents are included in the routing process?

The routing process requires that these items be routed before the submission deadline:

  1. Project summary/abstract (less than one page)
  2. Final budget
  3. Final budget justification/narrative
  • More documents may be required depending on the requirements of the RFP. 

Who reviews and approves a proposal routing?

A typical routing includes review and approval/signature by the following individuals/units (in this order): Principal Investigator, other OSU Co-Investigators, Department Head(s), Associate Dean(s), Central Sponsored Programs Administration, University Research Compliance, Grants and Contracts Financial Administration, Vice President for Research, and then back to Central Sponsored Programs Administration.

  • Additional OSU administrative units may be included, depending upon aspects of the proposed activity.
