The Office of Grants and Contracts (OGC) at CU Denver uses a 2-stage submission process – routing and then submission. Routing can be defined as the approval step. Since all awards are made to the University, you need to have approval from the University for your submission. The CLAS Office of Research and Creative Activities helps you to obtain the necessary College approvals and acts as a liaison with OGC for all proposals. The submission step is coordinated between you, the CLAS Research Services Senior Professional and OGC. The tabs below provide all the details you need to understand what is involved in each step.
