Season Days and Reminders from Sponsored Programs and ORSP

Final Stretch - Season Day Reminders

This time of year means a shorter working month to support and conduct our business. This year our offices will have standard season days, as granted by the University, and will be closed. See Dates and times below. Remember various sponsor offices also have limited staff and working hours during this time of year.

Almost 90% of our goalSponsored Programs

Only 314 outstanding FSRs

Thank you to all who met our 12/9/2021 deadline for financial status reports (FSRs). Only 314 outstanding reports remain from the original 2,368. Please help us by submitting these final reports today! 


Know the proposal submission deadline impact

Season day closings will impact internal proposal submission deadlines and whether your proposal receives a Full Review, a Limited Review, or is At Risk.

A proposal is due to the Sponsor on Monday, December 27, at 5:00 p.m.

  • For a Full Review, that proposal is now due to ORSP by Friday, December 17 at 5:00 p.m. 
  • For a Limited Review, that proposal is now due to ORSP by Wednesday, December 22 at 9:00 a.m.
  • Anything after that and the proposal is At Risk and may not be submitted.
Please note the date restrictions below so that our staff can enjoy a well-deserved break for the holiday. Make arrangements now with your team for any items you will be sending to ORSP to ensure ample time for processing. Remember that we may be working with limited staff as we approach these season days and that many sponsors' offices also have limited staff and closings during this season.
