LFS Processes & Procedures

Signatures for Grant Applications

  • Please allow at least 48-hour turnaround time for LFS signatures.
  • UBC Office of Research Services (ORS) has a 2 working days (or 5 working days for major competition periods) turnaround policy for signatures. We suggest you start the signature process at least 1 week before the sponsor competition deadline.
  • RPIF signature requests:

Email Dr. David Kitts, Associate Dean of Research and cc: lfs.research@ubc.ca  and attach your RPIF, and all UBC Office of Research Services (ORS) required pages/documents along with the Research Project Information Form.


Proposal Review

  • While we will always strive to provide thorough reviews of all the proposals submitted to us, the earlier you can provide us with a draft, the better. In particular, for the major grant deadline periods, we suggest contacting us at least three weeks in advance of the funding agency deadline.
