This policy applies to faculty, teachers, and staff in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University and to all institutional applications for externally funded projects sponsored by federal and state entities, professional organizations and associations, and other potential sponsors. These projects for research, instruction, training, and academic services involve performance obligations and must be officially submitted through Gallaudet University.
In order to support the scholarship of the Gallaudet community and to expand the financial resource base for important projects and programs, Gallaudet University actively encourages the development of proposals to obtain external funding for such projects. Since proposals for grants and contracts represent potential financial, legal, and administrative commitments on the part of the University, it is mandatory that the requisite institutional approval be obtained by submitting proposals through the Office of Sponsored Programs.
To provide for high quality and professional standards as well as uniformity of policies and procedures in applications for externally sponsored program support, all faculty, teachers, and staff are required to process grant and contract proposals through the Office of Sponsored Programs. The Director of Sponsored Programs is designated by the President of the University as the certifying representative for Gallaudet University for proposals. The Director of Sponsored Programs is authorized to negotiate with sponsors on behalf of the University. The Office of Sponsored Programs serves as the official liaison between the University and outside sponsors.
