The Office of Research for the School of Public Health (ORPH) has developed policies and guidelines to promote best practices in the preparation of proposals and applications, and provide guidance on all new research grant proposals and community service projects while in the formative stages as well as after receiving the “Notice of Award”.  ORPH staff aid in proposal development, ensuring alignment with sponsor guidelines and university, state, and federal policies.

PIs and department administrators involved in preparations of proposals and grant applications should be aware of the following:

Prior to Grant Submission

  • Notify the ORPH, Program Director and Business Office about intent to submit proposal/application.
  • Set up meetings with the ORPH and Business Office to review the proposal and develop a budget.
  • Letter of Intent that requires budget information must be routed to the ORPH and ORS before being sent to the Funding Agency. For LOI that does not require budget information ORPH should be made aware of your intent.
  • The LSUHSC Office of Research Services (ORS) requires routing of required documents (routing packet) 10 working days prior to submission deadline and proposal application documents 5 working days in advance of funding agency deadline. One additional day should be allowed for the ORPH to review all documents before routing to ORS.
