Completing Electronic Internal Approval Forms

College policy on proposal submission: To help ensure adequate time for review by the college grants officers (CGO), Chairs, and Associate Deans, the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment requires submission of the completed proposal package and PI-certified electronic Internal Approval Form (eIAF) with required attachments to your CGO no later than five (5) business days prior to the sponsor's deadline. Proposals requiring approvals by multiple departments and/or colleges should allow additional time for eIAF routing.
