How do I let OSP know something is urgent?

Review guidance on Urgent OSP Requests: Award Setup, Modifications, and Subawards

When to use an eGC1

  • Pre-applications, Pre-proposals, Letters of Intent / Interest
  • Proposals
  • Revised applications
  • Resubmission
  • Transfer from Another Institution
  • After-the-Fact proposals/awards
  • Non-award agreements and Non-award agreement continuations

Review specifics about each of these on When do I need an eGC1?

Have Pre-award Requests to Sponsors?

Email osp@uw.edu with the eGC1# in the subject line for your pre-award updates/revision requests to sponsors, including NSF and NIH pre-award updates/revisions. This includes items after a proposal is submitted and before an award arrives at the UW such as Just-in-Time requests.

When to Create an Award Setup Request

Create an Award Setup request when you receive a notification of an award from a sponsor AND you have an approved eGC1. Review more guidance on Award Setup Requests

Do you have an award notification, but don’t have an approved eGC1? Follow After-the-Fact eGC1 instructions.

When to use a Modification Request

When there are changes needed after an award has been set up in Workday Finance.


Have another type of Agreement you need reviewed or signed?

For help walking through when to route an agreement to OSP in SAGE use the OSP Agreements Decision Tree.

For Awards & Modifications in SAGE Review the comments & history on your SAGE item.

Still have questions on your SAGE items? Email the OSP reviewer assigned to your item.

Note: Please review who is assigned your item before reaching out. The last person who handled your item may not be the person assigned to your next item.
