Research Enterprise Solutions (RES) will replace Application for Proposal Routing and Approval (APRA) and is anticipated to launch January 29, 2024!

Please visit the RES website for more information on this exciting change.

As the first step in the proposal process, Principal Investigators must complete and submit the Proposal Routing Form (PRF) through the Application for Proposal Routing and Approval (APRA). This application will not only be used to notify the Office of Research Administration (ORA) of the proposal submission, but also route to the appropriate signatories for their required approvals prior to ORA’s proposal review and submission. The application replaces the former Proposal Intake Form and Proposal Routing Form generated in PeopleSoft, combining them into one, easy-to-use package. Please find the APRA dashboard link below, as well as numerous APRA user resources.
