OSPA winter break hours

November 29, 2016

OSPA will be closed during winter break from December 23th, 2016 through January 2rd, 2017. 

The OSPA main phone line (294-5225) will be monitored periodically during the four days that are not university holidays (12/27/16 - 12/30/16) when the university is partially closed.  University faculty or staff may email ospa-awards@iastate.edu for award-related activities or questions, and ospa-proposals@iastate.edu for proposal-related activities or questions.  The email accounts will be periodically monitored each of these four days, and any issues requiring action before January 3rd will be handled.

Summary Timeline:

12/09/16             GoldSheets should arrive in OSPA for proposals with budgets over $2M and due dates between 12/23/16 and 1/05/17.

12/19/16             GoldSheets should arrive in OSPA for proposals with budgets under $2M and due dates between 12/23/16 and 1/05/17.

12/23/16             OSPA closed for winter break through Monday, 01/03/17.

Researchers should start routing the GoldSheet 3-4 days before the above deadline, depending on the number of Co-PIs.

OSPA will close at 5:00PM on Thursday, 12/22/16.  We appreciate any efforts you can make to finalize your proposals as early as possible to avoid a rush on the afternoon of 12/22/16.

PIs should be aware that, due to the potential closing of departments, centers, colleges, and other university divisions over the winter break, submitted GoldSheets may not route to OSPA in a timely manner.  PIs should monitor the routing of the GoldSheet in the Liquid Office system to ensure GoldSheet approvals are not delayed.
