Research Management

The EE Research Management Team commits to working in partnership with each faculty member to provide the best support possible to facilitate the proposal submission process. This partnership is based on two distinct areas: business and research. The EE Research Management Team manages the business side of the proposal process; EE faculty manage the research side of the proposal process. The final result of these two components coming together is a cohesive proposal that is accurate, error free and is submitted on time to satisfy both University and sponsor deadlines.


The University of Washington requires that all proposals obtain campus approval prior to routing to UW Office of Sponsored Programs (UW OSP). This is an electronic process done via SAGE, the System to Administer Grants Electronically. Campus approval is required for all involved departments, colleges, deans and UW OSP.  

The UW submits thousands of proposals annually in support of our research mission. In order to manage the large flow of proposals that require review, revision, approval and submission, UW OSP has implemented the following deadlines for all proposal actions, stated below. These deadlines are determined based on the Sponsor Due Date. Not counting weekends and holidays, these routing deadlines are critical to working within Unviersity policy and ensure propsoals will be submitted on time.
