Using the ePRF

Using the ePRF

Getting started.

Much of the information in the ePRF is the same as it’s always been. What’s changed is you’ll be using a ‘smart’ form to enter proposal information, helping us minimize errors and duplicative data entry.

Start an ePRF from the ResearchUVA dashboard.

You’ll then fill in some basic information about the proposal (e.g., type of proposal, title of proposal, PI involved, Sponsor) and then move through the ePRF to complete information required in several tabs (Proposal, Sponsor, Personnel, Budget, Compliance, Science, and Documents).

Where can you access more information about the ePRF?

We’ve posted a comprehensive list of FAQs and a set of guidelines in the Using the ePRF section of this website, explaining the data elements in the ePRF to help ensure all users understand what specific information we are asking for in each section.
