I'm having a problem with proposal setup or routing.
I have incorrect data in my proposal.
I can't find a sponsor or subcontractor in InfoEd.
The sponsor or subcontractor may not be in the InfoEd database so you will have to request a new sponsor or subcontractor. The SR Business Systems & Operations Team sets up new sponsors and subcontractors in InfoEd. If you request an entity that’s already in the system, the BSO will let you know.
I can't find an investigator.
I'm having a problem accessing InfoEd off-campus.
Proposal Setup FAQs
How can I change the PI after I create an InfoEd Record?
How can I change the proposal type after I create an InfoEd Record?
How can I change the budget periods/dates after I create an InfoEd Record?
How can I change the proposal title after I create an InfoEd Record?
If the proposal is system-to-system (s2s) and has an SF424 page, the title can be changed there. If not, it can be changed on the Proposal Routing Form. Add the Proposal Routing form to the Internal Documents tab. The title will change once the form is completed.
If you are working on a non-funded negotiation (CDA, MTA, DUA) change the title on the Generic Face Page tab.
What if my proposal deadline changes?
What do I do if my proposal won’t be submitted?
Submission Requirements by Sponsor and Proposal Type
InfoEd Proposal Development (PD) is required for the internal routing and approval of all sponsored research projects (grants and contracts). Most grant proposals that used to be prepared using Adobe forms and submitted via Grants.gov must be prepared in, routed, and submitted using PD (no Adobe forms necessary). The chart below outlines proposal types by sponsor and the tools required for their preparation and submission.
