State: What you needed to do • Persons interested in submitting a proposal shall follow the following steps: • Complete template and email it to one of six members of the UT senior leadership in order to obtain official authorization label in order for the project to advance: Dr. Lloyd Jacobs, President; Rosemary Haggett, Main Campus Provost; Dr. Jeffrey Gold, Health Science Campus Provost; Scott Scarborough, Senior Vice President Finance; Charles Lehnert, Vice President Facility; and Frank Calzonetti, Vice President Research. Failure to obtain approval will threaten university support of the project at later stages. • Use “The University of Toledo authorizes….” as the beginning words of the narrative description. • Fill in all questions on the form as accurately as possible and submit the form to the State of Ohio. • Keep a copy of the submission and give an electronic AND hard copy to both the approving administrator and the Office of Government Relations (3510 University Hall, MS 926). • Keep the approving administrator and the Office of Government Relations informed of all correspondence from the State. • Consideration • This is a State form. It is not a federal form. • The “job creation” category is very important and should be a realistic number. • Collaboration is encouraged. However, a project with collaborators is only submitted by one of the partners. If you are a partner but not submitting, inform your approving administrator and UT Government Relations of your participation. • Timing is critical. Please submit your abstracts to one of the six members --------------------------- of senior leadership by Wednesday, February 25, 2009.
