Proposal Central application submission: helpful hints

IMPORTANT:
How to delegate the authority to submit your proposal to the RPM.
In order for RPMs to review and submit grants through Proposal Central, the PI has to go to the section of the application titled "Enable Other Users to Access this Proposal." The PI should scroll to the bottom of the page, enter the RPM's email address, then give the RPM"administrative" permission. The "administrative" permission allows the RPM to view, edit and submit the application. If the RPM is not given "administrative" permission, the RPM will not be able to access the submit button.

Special Note: Selecting the Institution's Name
School of Medicine PIs: Med. School PIs should select item #6 (following the “MDA clinic” listing) when they search for Stanford University. This one has the RMG Porter Drive address.
PIs in other schools: Select "the Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University" which will display the OSR address.

Selecting a signing official: the "Stanford University" profile will include the list of RPMs. If "the Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University" is selected, this profile will show the OSR signing officials.
