EH&S Contract and Grant Approvals

EH&S reviews a health and safety questionnaire for new contracts and grants that have previously been identified by the Office of Research as needing EH&S review. The form underwent a major revision in 2017, with the addition of new questions. Grants officers are asked to use the following guidelines:

  • Submit the form via e-mail attachment, campus mail, or fax (805.893.8659) to Hector Acuña, or Jim Casto at EH&S. Include short documentation which gives an overview of the proposal (abstract, or scope of work, or project summary, etc.). Please don’t send the whole proposal.
  • If there has been no change in the scope of the research that would change the questionnaire, i.e. continuation, or increment grant, submission of questionnaire not required.
  • If the grant is a renewal we ask that a new questionnaire be submitted for approval.
  • We also require that the PI sign/date the bottom of the form.
