Five (5) business days prior to a funding agency submission deadline, University Research Services requires: (i) an electronic or hard copy of your application (with Department Head and/or Dean signatures if required by the funding agency)  and (ii) an approved TRAQ DSS Form in the TRAQ (Tools for Research at Queen's) system.  For researchers conducting research within the Hospitals (KGH, HDH, PC) or utilizing Hospital resources, the TRAQ DSS Form MUST be submitted at least 15 business days prior to the agency deadline to ensure all hospital approvals are in place.  It is important for researchers to consult early with the various hospital departments (Hospital Operational Directors) to get an estimate to help develop their budgets and to consult well in advance of the deadline (>1 month) to discuss any issues involving impact on patient flow, budgeting for hospital services and cost recovery, preparing a human ethics review submission, etc.
