A colleague in another department within Columbia University wants to include me in a proposal. What is required?

Please connect OSP with the Department Administrator (DA) of the department that will be submitting the proposal. The School of Social Work will need to be listed as an approver on the Proposal Data Sheet in RASCAL. This serves as the official record demonstrating that the School has reviewed the budget and is aware of SSW faculty and/or staff’s participation in the proposed project.

OSP will work with the external department to ensure that they calculate base salaries and effort correctly for SSW personnel. OSP must receive a copy of the portions of the final budget and justification that relate to SSW support.

Once an award is made, please notify OSP so we can ensure that salary support is properly charged to the project.
