Research Foundation proposal distribution is going electronic (9/26/2012)

Old Dominion University Research Foundation fully supports the University’s commitment and efforts towards sustainability.  Since receiving requests from the research community to change the paper distribution of proposal packages, the Research Foundation has been working on a process to make this happen.  Beginning today, proposal distribution to PIs, Co-PIs, Department Heads, and Deans will happen electronically. 

Instead of receiving paper copies of your proposals via campus mail, you will now receive an electronic version via email.  The email will contain a PDF version of your proposal.  In the event the file is too large to be emailed directly, you will receive a link to your proposal via Dropbox (a secure file sharing site) which you can easily download.  Should you prefer to receive a paper version of your proposal, you can request it when you receive the email from your Grant and Contract Administrator. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Jessica Harrison, Associate Manager at  Thank you for your patience as we have worked on this process.
