Special Circumstances

Early notification and extended processing times

Pre-Award strongly recommends earlier proposal initiation for certain large, multi-institutional, complex agency RFPs. Revised timelines may be developed on a case-by-case basis and issued by the Director of Pre-Award to the PIs.

Early notification and processes are strongly recommended for a proposal or funding application that involves any of the following uncommon circumstances:

  1. The sponsor or prime sponsor is a foreign entity
  2. The proposal is for a U.S. federal government contract — not a grant or cooperative agreement
  3. The sponsor requires the submission of a small business subcontracting plan, an intellectual property management plan, a laboratory safety plan, or any other plan or document that must be developed or coordinated outside of Sponsored Program Services
  4. The proposal requests funding in excess of $5 million of direct costs per budget year
  5. A purpose of the proposal is to establish a new Purdue University center or institute
  6. The proposal involves construction or renovation
