Here is an overview of the proposal routing and submission process:
All proposals must be submitted to OSP via the Sponsored Program System (SPS). SPS is a web-based proposal routing and approval system designed to streamline the proposal routing and approval process. Proposals need to be loaded and routed through SPS at least three business days prior to the proposal mailing deadline or electronic submission deadline. Additional time should be provided if the proposal is interdisciplinary or multi-institutional, or includes matching commitments from third parties.
You can also sign up for an SPS Training class by going to myLSU. Click on "Employee Resources" and then "HRM Training Programs".
Features of SPS:
In order to view and/or approve transactions in SPS you will need to submit a Security Access Request. Requests can be initiated by selecting the "Security Access Request" link that is located under the "Financial Services" section of myLSU. User Guides and Tutorials can be found here on Financial System Services website.
