Submission Authority on Behalf of UCF

The UCF Office of Research & Commercialization (ORC) is the only office vested with the authority to sign research proposals and contracts on behalf of the University of Central Florida. The ORC must verify that a proposal is current, complete, and accurate. Therefore, ORC must review, approve, and sign all proposals, including those when UCF will be a subcontractor, prior to submission to the funding agency. Faculty members are not authorized to submit proposals without prior College, Department, Center, Institute, and ORC review and approval. The approval process is performed through the electronic Proposal Transmittal Form (PTF) in ARGIS.
