Sponsors of all types are increasingly limiting the number of submissions an organization may make to any given program. This helps the sponsor manage workflow, but places an additional responsibility on the submitting organization. The articles below describe processes for the internal review and approval of certain limited submission programs in which RIT participates. For programs not described below, please use the Intent to Submit Form.
