Effective January 4, 2016, all proposals for extramural support must be submitted to SPA for
review and endorsement, along with a fully-signed Proposal Routing Form, by 9:00 a.m.
three (3) business days before the proposal must be submitted to the sponsor. For example,
a proposal that must be submitted to a sponsor on Friday must be delivered to SPA by 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
Enter the sponsor's official published submission deadline and press the Calculate button to
calculate the date your proposal will be due at SPA. The deadline calculator will take into
account weekend days and official University holidays. Remember that "submission" for proposals
that are overnight mailed is the date the proposal must be mailed
by SPA, not the date the sponsor
must receive the submission. Contact SPA at 612-624-5599 if you have additional questions.
