Routing Procedures

Proposals submitted by the High Point University faculty carry the University’s commitment to fulfilling the project if awarded.  This institutional commitment requires that proposals are properly reviewed and approved to ensure that they conform to High Point University policies and procedures. 

All proposals including new, renewal, and supplemental proposals and subsequent revised versions, must be internally routed through Cayuse Sponsored Projects (SP) for review.

  4. Does this proposal need review by High Point University’s compliance committees?
  5. Is any proposed cost share acceptable and are these funds available during the proposed period of performance?
