Any research or scholarly project with outside funding must be processed through the Office of Research and Sponsored Projects. Federal, state, and U-M policies and regulations guide the processing of proposals and submission to a potential sponsor, as well as the subsequent handling of projects resulting from successful proposals.
The proposal is routed through the University of Michigan via the eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM) system with an accompanying Proposal Approval Form (PAF), created in eRPM, which documents university commitments to the project at each level from the department to the central administration.
Some gifts and fellowships may not require ORSP processing. Therefore, consider: Is it a sponsored project?
A collection of materials to aid in how to write a proposal, create a budget, process it through the University, and submit it to a sponsor.
