SeRA Proposal Development & Routing Form
For proposals submitted through the School of Medicine’s Research Management Group (RMG), the PI/ department should complete a Proposal Intake Form (PIF) in SeRA and submit to RMG for intake and processing (recommended at least 30 days in advance of the sponsor deadline). The Research Process Manager (RPM) will then follow up with a draft budget, internal deadlines, and proposal guidance as needed.
For proposals submitted through the Office of Sponsored Research, the PI/ department should complete a Proposal Development Routing Form (PDRF) in SeRA and submit to OSR for intake and processing in accordance with the Stanford internal proposal deadline policy.

When PDRFs are Returned for Edits
When a PDRF is being routed for approval each approver e.g. participating investigators, staff approvers, and institutional officials have the option to return the PDRF for either Minor or Major Edits.
When a PDRF is returned to an administrator for Minor Edits all PDRF fields can be edited EXCEPT the following which can only be edited when the PDRF is returned for Major Edits.
