Notice of Intent (NOI)
The Notice of Intent (NOI) is the official notification to the Office of Research Administration (ORA) that a Principal Investigator is planning to submit a proposal. An NOI must be completed when UM is the lead institution on a proposal, a subaward through another institution, or if the sponsor is adding new funds to an existing UMaine project. The Notice of Intent should be submitted in PARS no later than fifteen business days prior to the submission deadline.
Please contact ORA proposal staff at any point during the NOI submission process with questions or concerns.
