Meeting the internal deadline gives ORS staff time to review the application for compliance with the funding agency's requirements, for errors or omissions to be caught in the review process, and for you to correct them. There is no need to request an extension to the internal deadline since not meeting it will only result in your application potentially not receiving a final review. It will still be forwarded on to the agency on the deadline day (provided you put your application into submit mode).
A review of any applications submitted after the internal deadline will only be conducted if time permits. Please ensure that your SFU signature sheet is received by our office ASAP (via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this process, please let us know.
NOTE: The ORS website will be updated with this internal deadline of Tuesday March 29, 2016 in the next few days.
