UMD Research Administration Support

UMD Research Administration Support:

Proposal Deadlines.  In general, we expect that ORA will be able to submit proposals, even if personnel are working remotely.  Our experience is that federal agencies are more flexible about deadlines under difficult circumstances beyond our control.  However, if agencies are officially closed, proposals will most likely remain in a queue, pending resumption of agency operations, as has been the case during federal budget-related shutdowns.  Updated information will be posted on the ORA website, if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions.  Questions from our Principal Investigators and Research Administration staff can be submitted via our online form or sent to If we are unable to answer them, we will pass them along to federal agency staff for response. That information will be posted here to ensure broad access, and similar information from our peer institutions can be found here.  In the interim, we are providing general guidance for our researchers that will be updated as more specific information becomes available.
