E-Submission of the ORS Checklist (ongoing)

Recurring event see all

30 September 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Faculty members are strongly encouraged to use the DocuSign electronic method outlined below for obtaining the required signature for the ORS Checklist and research application. Completing this form will automatically route the ORS Checklist to the Research Officer and then to the Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Education for signature.

Submit the ORS Checklist along with an e-copy of the complete application, including the budget and budget justification, to the Research Officer 48 hours prior to the funding agency deadline.  If your application contains any Faculty of Science or YorkU commitments, please ensure that they are listed on the ORS Checklist and attach written documentation confirming the contribution. Note, for applications that do not have commitments, the Chair’s signature is not required on the ORS Checklist. Applications will be reviewed by the Research Officer and once all is in good order, the Associate Dean Research will e-sign the ORS Checklist.

The Process for the ORS Checklist using DocuSign

Applicants can access the ORS Checklist at the Docusign website.  A PowerForm Signer information sheet will appear and the applicant will be required to enter their name and e-mail, the name and e-mail of the Research Officer, and the name and e-mail of the Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Education or other approved delegate. Once complete, select “begin signing.”

Applicants will then be directed to the ORS Checklist. Input all required fields relating to the application as highlighted in the ORS Checklist. Once all required fields are complete, select “Finish”.

The ORS Checklist will then flow to the Research Officer for review. Applicants will also need to email their complete application, including the budget and budget justification, to the F.Sc. Research Officer for review.  Once the application has been reviewed, the Research Officer will be required to initial the document before the ORS Checklist can move to the Associate Dean Research for final signature. Note the ORS checklist will not move forward until the Research Officer has reviewed and selected “finish”.

Once the Research Officer has initialed and selected “finish,” the ORS Checklist will go to the Associate Dean Research for signature.

Once the Associate Dean Research has signed, the fully signed ORS Checklist will go back to all signatories as a completed document (Applicant, RO and ADR/delegate).

The applicant will then send the fully signed ORS Checklist along with an electronic copy of the complete application in a single e-mail to ORS at researchapps@yorku.ca for processing and review. If the application is to a competition that is supported by the SIRI unit, please send to Mark Roseman at roseman@yorku.ca.
