All non-critical areas of the U of MN Twin Cities Campus will be closed from December 24th, 2010 through January 2nd, 2011. The Office of Sponsored Projects (SPA) will also be closed during this period. The SPA Closure announcement describes various deadlines and provisions in place to meet the needs of the research community during the closure. Note: Monday, December 20th has been established as the deadline for most proposals, invoices, and other transactions to be submitted to SPA. This early deadline will ensure that processing can be completed by 5:00 p.m. on December 23rd, before the University Closure period begins.
If any of your faculty are planning to submit a grant proposal that is due during or before the closure or need other grants management assistance please have them contact the CLA grants team to discuss a reasonable timeline. Be sure to allow adequate time for CLA administrative processing and proposal submission details. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Gayle Anderson, CLA Grants Management Coordinator at 612.626.9612 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
