RAC Offices During the Campus Curtailment Fridays

The UC Berkeley campus has scheduled Curtailment Fridays on July 24, July 31, August 7, and August 14, 2020.

The Sponsored Projects Office will be open and will be providing proposal and award services to the campus on Friday, July 24, 2020. SPO will be closed for curtailment on July 31, August 7, and August 14, 2020.  See SPO revised proposal submission dates related to these curtailment dates.  Note: SPO will make up the unused curtailment day at a future time (to be announced).

The Office for Animal Care and Use, the Conflict of Interest Committee Office, and the Office for Protection of Human Subjects will be closed for all four curtailment days: July 24, July 31, August 7, and August 14, 2020. However, the CPHS 1 meeting scheduled for August 7 will still take place. 


SPO Proposal Submission

SPO will process proposals due in July and August 2020 according to the VCR’s four-day proposal submission policy with the following exceptions:

Proposal Due Date/Time Draft Due to SPO Final Proposal Due to SPO
Friday, July 31, 2020, 5 pm deadline Monday, July 27, 2020, 8 am Thursday, July 30, 2020, 8 am
Friday, August 7, 2020, 5 pm deadline Monday, August 3, 2020, 8 am Thursday, August 6, 2020, 8 am

Principal Investigators also are encouraged to inform their SPO Contract and Grant Officer (CGO) if they will be submitting a proposal with a due date just prior to, during, or just after the curtailment period. This will give SPO and the PI an opportunity to discuss the best way to handle the proposal to make sure it is submitted in a timely manner.
