BoRSF Eligible Disciplines

Proposal submissions that fall outside of the listed FY 2018-2019 eligible disciples list will not be submitted to BoR by ORSP. 

ORSP Proposal Preparation & Guidance

In conjunction with the FY 2018-2019 BoRSF competition, ORSP provides the following documents to jump start your proposal preparation efforts. 

Narrative & Budget Templates

Please feel free to use the following narrative templates as a guide for responding to the BoRSF RFPs.  However, as these templates only address the narrative portion of the submission, they should not be used as a substitution for reading and responding to the RFP in full.

Also provided below are budget calculation templates (EXCEL) and budget justification templates (Word). Please use these templates for your FY 2018-2019 submissions, as the appropriate fringe rates, etc. have been included in this version of the templates.  Please do not use the federal funding templates found elsewhere on the ORSP website for BoRSF submissions.

Internal ORSP Deadlines

General Routing Requirements

Friendly Routing Reminders!

Proposals must be submitted to ORSP no later than the posted internal deadlines (coming soon!) to allow for adequate time for review, revisions, and approvals prior to the BOR deadlines.

Proposals submitted to ORSP after the internal deadline dates will not be reviewed or submitted.

Full proposals routed to ORSP must also include:

  • Completed and signed internal proposal approval form which can be found here.
  • Cost share form, IF cost share is included in the project budget, which can be found here

Please note: 

  • Incomplete proposals or those missing signatures will not be checked in. 
  • Due to staff limitations and workload during this time, proposal documents and budgets must be routed in order to be reviewed. 
  • If you have any questions on how to complete any of these documents, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.

LOGAN Submission System

Access to the BoR’s submission system, LOGAN, is available at this link. New users will need to create a PI account in advance of posted deadlines. Previous users may need to reset their password via the LOGAN website if unable to login. We encourage you to complete the forms on LOGAN in advance of routing your proposal to ORSP to expedite the review and routing process.
