The purpose of the RPAS is to assure that all projects submitted on behalf of Occidental College are in alignment with the College’s mission and conform with institutional administrative and fiscal policies.
The Request for Proposal Approval and Submission is a MSWord® document and is designed to be easy to complete. If you click in the first text box (PI Last Name) and use the TAB key to move through the form, each text box will expand as you type in it. Completing each field will make it easier to secure approval for your submission.
The RPAS must be reviewed by several people and may require a request for further information from you; therefore, please submit it at least 10 business days before your proposal is due. All proposal documentation (budget, narrative, RFP, etc) needs to be submitted together even if only in draft form! Please note: An RPAS is required for a pre-proposal, but please check with the grants office about budgets for pre-proposals - those may not be necessary. Once you have completed the form, save it to your computer or network space, then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and copy Jaletta White-Griego at email@example.com. Be sure that you include a summary of the project and a draft budget (budget should be in Excel format). We cannot issue approval for submission unless the purpose of the grant is known and the budget has been reviewed. You may print the RPAS for your own records, but a hard copy is not required. If your proposal is for grants.gov or NSF Fastlane or other sites requiring on-line submission, please be sure to notify the SRO of your deadline so that we can have someone available for the final submission.
