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. At minimum, 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 approved the inclusion of SSW faculty on a given proposal.

OSP will work with the external department to ensure that base salaries of SSW personnel are listed correctly and that the effort is calculated correctly. A scope of work and/or budget justification should be provided to OSP. Once an award is made, please notify OSP so we can ensure that SSW salary support is properly charged to the project.
