How to Route Your Proposal

The Proposal Routing Form ensures that applications, contracts or proposals for external support have received adequate internal review and consideration.  The review process includes the Principal Investigator, Department Chair, the respective Dean or designee, Research Accounting and the Associate Provost for Research and Graduate Studies.

The signature of each stakeholder located on the Proposal Routing Form indicates their responsibility and assurance of compliance considerations.  All applications, contracts or proposals for external funds to support sponsored projects that will be awarded to TCU must be routed for institutional approval signatures.  The Proposal Routing Form, with attachments, should be completed and received in Sponsored Programs with time allowed for adequate review and submission prior to the sponsor deadline.

To begin the Proposal Routing Form, the PI should click the DocuSign Link below:

After the approvals are complete, all stakeholders will receive an email from DocuSign with the completed form.  Sponsored Programs will review the proposal routing form, proposal and budget and work with applicable stakeholders if changes are required and ensure approvals are documented with the final submission of the proposal.

For questions regarding how to complete the Proposal Routing Form, contact Sponsored Programs | 817.257.7516 or view the form instructions here: DocuSign Proposal Routing Form Instructions.
