The mandatory campus closure means that SPO staff will be unavailable for proposal preparation support or proposal review from 12/24/20 to 1/3/21.  PIs are encouraged to submit a Proposal Submission Request (PSR) as soon as possible, especially if the proposal needs to be submitted with a due date before, during, or just after the curtailment period. This will allow SPO and the PI to discuss the best way to manage the proposal and submit the proposal to meet the sponsor’s due date.   

 

If the schedule doesn’t work under a special circumstance, or there is a unexpected urgent proposal submission request, please contact Jue Sun at 209-201-2039 or email spo@ucmerced.edu.
