Located in ALRT Administrative Center, 760A Mayo

Grant approval

The ALRT Center prefers electronic signatures on PRFs. However, grants needing ink signatures for Carol El-Ghandour's administrative approval and Department Head approval can be dropped off and picked up at her cubicle in 760 Mayo.

Routing chain for electronic signature

Anyone doing a grant also needs to do the PRF (Proposal Routing Form), and the PRF needs to be approved by Carol El-Ghandour before getting a Department Head signature. A PRF can be done as a hard copy with ink signatures or electronically using EGMS to get electronic signatures.

Please fill in the appropriate X.500 IDs for your Department if you are doing an electronic routing of a PRF for signatures (click the link below to take you to a PDF document listing the necessary order, approvers, and their X.500 ID for each department in ALRT).
