We wish to remind you that NYU will be closed for the holidays from 5 PM, December 23, 2014, until 9 AM, January 5, 2014. Proposals with submission deadlines between December 23, 2014 and January 7, 2015 must be received at OSP no later than the close of business on Wednesday, December 17 to ensure their submission by the deadline. You may want to arrange for departmental/school clearance prior to that.
As is always the case, if a proposal is received with insufficient time for review, OSP may only be able to verify that the appropriate individuals have authorized a submission (the minimum requirement) and that OSP will in fact submit the proposal prior to the deadline. OSP is unable to guarantee a *successful submission* to the external agency if received by OSP without sufficient time to correct errors that may be found in the proposal by granting agency submission systems, or if any electronic systems required for submission experience technical issues due to volume, weather, or other circumstances out of the control of submitting organizations.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation and best wishes for a healthy and productive New Year.
