Items Needed for Review

The following items, as appropriate, need to be included for review:

  • Signed Routing Form
  • Sponsor Guidelines, Funding Announcement
  • Proposal Abstract
  • Budget, including commitments for any matching funds
  • Budget Justification
  • List of Key Personnel
  • Any special administrative documents required by the Sponsor or Prime Collaborator

Forward a complete copy of the proposal and the original signed routing form to the Office of Sponsored Projects, HB 6210, within ten (10) working days after the proposal has been submitted to the sponsor.

The Office of Sponsored Projects reviewers will keep the original routing form for the Office files. The Principal Investigator is expected to forward a complete copy of the proposal to the Office.

Routing forms without the required Institutional signatures may be returned to the Principal Investigator.

  • Assurances: If human subjects or animals will be used in this project, the protocol approval date and the CPHS study number (for human subjects) or the IACUC project number (for animals) must be provided on this form. In addition, for animal use, the species and quantity must also be listed.
  • Environmental Health and Safety (EHS): Work involving the following require institutional approval and oversight. If applicable to your proposed or on-going work, failure to complete this section or to withhold information may be construed as misconduct. Please attach additional sheets, as necessary, to list all applicable materials. Contact EHS if you have any question or need assistance (646-1762).
  • Biological: Human blood or body fluids, tissues or blood borne pathogens (HBV, HIV, etc.); other potentially infectious materials handled at Biological Safety Level 2, as defined in the latest edition of the CDC/NIH publication, Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories; recombinant DNA (rDNA) requiring institutional approval.
  • Chemical: Carcinogens, mutagens, teratogens or chemicals of unknown toxicity; toxic metals (lead, mercury, cadmium, etc.); acutely toxic materials or chemicals with poor warning properties/limited margin of safety (cyanides, phosgene, etc.); reactive chemicals (chemicals capable of releasing potentially hazardous amounts of energy if subject to static, shock, friction or contaminated with other chemicals).
  • Radiation: Ionizing radiation; non-ionizing radiation (lasers, specifically), (UV light used in molecular biology is excepted).
  • Sub recipients: Please indicate if there are any sub recipients included in the proposed budget.
  • Internal Cost-Sharing: When cost-sharing is required, the source, type, and amount of funds should be identified with the signatory approval of the appropriate dean.
  • External Matching Funds: The Development Office should review the proposal if they are responsible for raising external matching funds.
  • Invention Agreement: Check this box if you know you have a signed Invention Agreement on file in our office. Federal Law (37 CFR 401, "Bayh-Dole Act") requires that universities have written agreements with all the employees involved in research, pursuant to which they agree to assign the university any inventions made with Federal funding. In order to comply with this law and ensure that the College records are complete, all Dartmouth employees involved in research are asked to provide the Technology Transfer Office, HB 6210, with a signed Employee Invention Agreement. Please contact the Office of Sponsored Projects for Technology Transfer at 646-3027, if you require a copy of the agreement.
  • Conflict of Interest Statement: In order to comply with the Dartmouth Conflict of Interest policy, the Principal Investigator's signature is mandatory for each proposal submitted.
