Each page has a “help” button. This link will take you to the RAMSeS Routing page that has further resources as well as a guide to submitting the IPF.
What if I can not find the sponsor's name on the list?
If the Sponsor is not listed, select “Organization Not Listed” at the bottom of the page. A new pop up window will appear allowing you to type in the name of the Sponsor.
What happens after I submit the IPF?
Clicking “Submit Proposal” will start the following process:
the eIPF will be “locked” and can no longer be edited (except by the Admin Award Dept)
the eIPF will be routed to all affiliated departments for review and concurrence; should any of these departments reject the eIPF you will be notified by email of the rejection and for what reason(s)
the PI(s) will be notified by email that they must certify the eIPF in RAMSeS
ultimately, the eIPF will arrive in OSP for final review and approval
Throughout these steps you, your PI, and any other contributing members listed on the eIPF will be able to track its review and approval status in RAMSeS.
Once all affiliated departments have approved the eIPF, you will receive an email indicating that it was successfully routed and received in OSP. Your grants Specialist will reach out to the PI and/or Departmental Research Administrator with the results of their review and any needed steps prior to submission.
How are people notified that they need to approve/certify an eIPF?
Several emails are used to notify individuals of the status of a proposal and also what action is needed on their part. These emails are sent to people based on their role in the project (e.g. Lead Principal Investigator) as well as their role within a department (e.g. IPF approver).
