How do you calculate the 5-day and 2-day deadlines?
Example: If you are submitting a new NIH R21 with a deadline of October 16, 2021 (a Saturday), you would use Friday, October 15th, to calculate the 5-day and 2-day deadlines.
*Note: All documents should be submitted to OSP by 5 p.m. on the 5- and 2-day deadline days.
5-day deadline: Administrative components are due.
2-day deadline: Technical components and incoming subaward proposal components are due.
* For complex awards we suggest that you provide documents to the OSP inbox 10 days in advance to ensure a timely review (e.g., application involve a foreign entity, U or P mechanisms, or a proposal with 3 or more subcontracts).
