Each day (at 6:00 AM), the system checks for any applications that are between six and three business days prior to their sponsor deadline. SPAERC sends out the sponsor deadline reminder email if the application’s value for the Ready to Submit question is “No”. The email is sent to the PI, Administrative Contact, Pre-Award Budget Contact, and eGC1 Preparer. If the value changes to “Yes” within the six-to-three day timeline, the system stops sending the email.
Note: this email is not sent if the application is after-the-fact or a clinical trial
Calculation used: Sponsor deadline date minus the current date falls between three and six business days inclusive of today. Holidays are counted as business days.

7 and 3 DAY DEADLINES – 7 DAY: An approved eGC-1 and the proposal containing all final business elements should be received by OSP at least seven (7) working days prior to the sponsor deadline. 3 DAY: All applications must be received by OSP in final format and ready for submission to the sponsor by 5:00pm, three business days in advance of the sponsor deadline. All applications that must be submitted electronically to the sponsor must answer “yes” to the “Ready to Submit” (RTS) question on the GC-1 prior to OSP submission of the application. Deadline calculations do not include weekends, holidays, or the actual sponsor due date listed on the eGC1. See GIM 19 at http://www.washington.edu/research/policies/gim-19-internal-deadlines-for-proposals-to-external-entities/ for more information.
According to the eGC1 listed below, your application is due at the sponsor in 5 days. Final sponsor documents need to be uploaded immediately and the “Ready to Submit” (RTS) question on the eGC1 answered “Yes” to ensure adequate time for review and submission to the sponsor grant system. The RTS question on the eGC1 is currently answered “No”.
