Research and Sponsored Programs Forms
Either submit the docusign form linked below or fill out the pdf and email to
ORSP-1 Research Initiation Request Form
This form is required to gain approval for research projects conducted by WVSOM.
Use this form when initiating a new research project with global specific aims. There is no need to complete an additional ORSP-1 form when adding subjects, species, or interventions, if the general aims are the same. Simply email the ORSP and describe the additional details.
To add or remove personnel from an approved research project, simply email the ORSP with the individual's name, role, and contact information (along with the approved research project ID).
For sponsored project applications (e.g. grants that are not research projects), there is no need to complete this form.
Intramural Grant Application
Use this form when submitting request for
funds for research projects, along with an ORSP-1 form if the research project has not previously been approved.
Currently, intramural grant applications are due August 15, December 15, and April 15.
ORSP-3 Heads up Grant/Sponsored Project submission
This form is NOT required. Rather, it is to give the ORSP a heads up on intended grant submissions, prior to the details being determined.
Use this form if you know in well in advance that you will be applying for a particular grant/award, but do not have a draft of the narrative or budget to provide the office.
Again, this form is NOT required, but it is much appreciated so the ORSP staff can plan appropriately and ensure somebody is here during the 5 business days leading up to the award submission.
ORSP-5 Grant Internal Approval Form
This form is a required form that must be completed prior to the ORSP submitting an
grant or sponsored project.
Submit this form with a complete budget and budget narrative at least 5 business days prior to the grant/award submission deadline, per Procedures for extramural submission on the Pre-Award page.
Contract vs. Subaward Determination Form
Use this form to help determine whether an entity receiving funds has a contractor or subaward relationship with the grant recipient.
ORSP-6 Financial Interest Disclosure (SFID)
WVSOM employees and students should complete this form online at my.wvsom.edu under the "Researcher Conflict of Interest" link.
This form is for non-WVSOM investigators/program directors. To access this form, contact the ORSP.
Non-Research Scholarly Activity Form (NRSA)
This form is to document non-research scholarly activity. It is not required, but it is appreciated. Also, see the instructions below.
Use this prior to initiating a project to ensure it is being conducted appropriately and following all WVSOM policy and procedure.
Submitting this form PRIOR to initiating the project generally makes students eligible to request funding for travel/poster presentations, if funding is available.
This form includes a Determination of non-human subjects research request.
ORSP-8 Time and Effort Certification
In cases where a single, small award is provided to a Principal Investigator/Project Director (“PI/PD”), which includes stipends, non-salary compensation, or a contractual sponsored award that may not be entered into the Grant Time and Effort Certification System, the commitment shall be certified by the employee using the ORSP-8: Time and Effort Certification form.
The ORSP-8 form shall be completed and signed by the individual, provided to the PI/PD for certification and signature and then submitted to the ORSP. This type of certification must occur at least bi-annually.
