SPO Holiday deadlines: 12/3/97

Sponsored Projects Office holiday deadlines

The Sponsored Projects Office will be closed during university holidays: Thursday, Dec. 25; Friday, Dec. 26; Thursday, Jan. 1, 1998, and Friday, Jan. 2.

Please submit proposals having early January deadlines to SPO or your school research administrative office no later than Friday, Dec. 12, to ensure a quality review and timely processing, and to beat the usual heavy holiday mail. Please list an available departmental contact on the SU-42, in the event the contract officer has any questions about the proposal package. Also, be aware that some sponsors will not accept late Federal Express packages. The Department of Defense, for example, has warned us not to rely on commercial carriers for 24-hour delivery ­ and that their deadlines are absolute.

Both Central SPO (3-2883) and the Dean of Research Office will be open with a minimal staff during the extended holiday period. SR
