SPA PREP (Proposal Review Expedited Process)
In an effort to better meet the needs of WSU’s research community, Sponsored Program Administration (SPA) has initiated PREP (Proposal Review Expedited Process). This new process is optional and provides a Principal Investigator (PI) the opportunity to submit, via eProp, portions of a proposal for review well before the actual submission deadline to the sponsor, while continuing to work on the science or narrative portion of an application up to 9 a.m. one day prior to the sponsor submission deadline. The benefits of PREP are two-fold: SPA can begin review of any application forms and budgets for content and accuracy and Principal Investigators can devote more time to honing the science and narrative portions of their applications.
