Sponsored research implies a certain level of commitment of College and DHMC resources to a project. Primarily for that reason, the Council on Sponsored Activities has requested that all investigators file a complete copy, excluding appendices, of proposals submitted to external funding agencies with the OSP. Each proposal submitted to external funding agencies, under the auspices of Dartmouth College or the DHMC, goes through a review process at the OSP. Part of this review includes noting that the Dartmouth College Proposal Routing Form has been completed.
The Dartmouth College Proposal Routing Form is used to route proposals for on-campus signatures and also serves as the data entry form for the Sponsored Research database maintained by the OSP. Records maintained by the OSP are the official records of the College and are subject to review by auditors and other officials of funding agencies. Information contained on the routing form is also used to generate monthly and annual reports detailing sponsored activity at the College, and is essential for the College's long range planning efforts. Timely submission of this form facilitates these information gathering activities. Not all information requested on the Routing Form may not be applicable to every proposal. Questions concerning this form should be referred to the OSP.
