• PAPER ENDORSEMENT FORMS WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED AS OF JANUARY 1, 2018

 

  1. RAPSS MANDATORY FOR ALL SUBMISSION BEGINNING JANUARY 1, 2018

All proposal submissions must be entered into the Rutgers’ Research Administration and Proposal Submission System (RAPSS) as of January 1, 2018.  This includes all continuations, renewals, etc., even if they didn't originate in RAPSS. Please remember that all proposals must be endorsed and reviewed by ORSP prior to submission to a sponsor for consideration. RAPSS provides for electronic endorsement and review for all proposals.  Beginning January 2018, ORSP will no longer accept paper endorsement forms.  A RAPSS activity matrix (https://ored.rutgers.edu/rapss/rapss-activity-matrix) describes the types of activities that are processed through ORSP and OCC and how that processing occurs.  RAPSS Quick Reference Guides are available at https://ored.rutgers.edu/rapss/quick-reference-guides, which describe how to input data into RAPSS for various scenarios.  The newest guides, labeled “Legacy (Paper Endorsement)” are intended for activities that had continued to be processed in paper but in January must be entered into RAPSS.  Please contact your grant specialist or the RAPSS Helpdesk at rapss_help@orsp.rutgers.edu for more information.
