    research@tntech.edu  |  (931) 372-3464

    The Office of Research is updating the Proposal Endorsement Form (PEF) to make the routing process more efficient and to ensure compliance of all personnel involved in the project.  Changes, which will take effect September 3, will include a shorter required routing list to include only the PI and his/her respective chair, Center director (if applicable) and dean; a table on release; and a new way for the co-PIs and senior personnel to complete their compliance.  Please note that a final copy of the completed and signed PEF will be emailed to the PI and all involved co-PI(s), senior personnel, chairs, Center directors, deans, and bookkeepers after the proposal is submitted.  Please contact the Office of Research if you have any questions.  The PEF can still be accessed through DocuSign.

  • Office of Research Process for Routing Proposal Endorsement Forms Changing
    amyhill@tntech.edu  |  x 3464

    Please note that, effective June 1, the Office of Research Proposal Endorsement Form (PEF) routing and initiation process will be handled through the following DocuSign portal link:

    https://na3.docusign.net/Member/PowerFormSigning.aspx?PowerFormId=009b1b54-e19d-46ef-b9d4-2c57c3f0edbf&env=na3-eu1

    This will replace the current process of printing hard copies of the PEF and proposal and manually routing them through campus for signatures.  Please attach supporting proposal documents via the attachment clip at the bottom of the PEF.  Please also note that only certain sections of the PEF are available for editing by certain users.  For example, the fiscal clerks may edit Page 1 and the top of Page 2.  Only the PI can mark the compliance sections on Pages 2 and 3.  The appropriate required signature sections are noted at the bottom.  Please contact Amy Hill at amyhill@tntech.edu if you have any trouble with the procedure.
