Starting immediately, the University is requiring that all COVID-19 related proposals and awards be flagged. We are defining “COVID related” broadly as any COVID specific solicitation or project activities directed to COVID.
To support this effort, OSP is requesting that you add the term “COVID:” to the beginning of both the short and long titles in the Document Summarhttp://ospa.siu.edu/_common/documents/IDC%20Guidelines.pdfy Sheet (DSS) prepared in eProposal. This naming convention would then carry forward into eAward and Peoplesoft automatically.
For tracking purposes, please also create a new DSS for COVID related pre-proposals (including white papers) and supplements. OSP's procedure on DSS Creation has been updated to reflect this change.
The University is also requesting that researchers carrying out or considering COVID-19-related research fill out a brief survey. The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) will use the data to identify opportunities for collaboration, areas of expertise, and to connect researchers with funding opportunities.
