What is your Project Partnership Application process?
Individuals or organizations seeking a project partnership are invited to use the online portal to complete the Letter of Intent (LOI) form with an outline of the project.
Letters of intent are reviewed regularly by staff and you can use the online portal to track the status of your submission.
If CERIC determines the project to be within its current guidelines, interests and resource priorities, the potential project partner will be invited to submit a formal proposal via the online portal.
Proposals are reviewed on an ongoing basis by staff and may include additional feedback from the one or more of its Advisory Committees. If deemed acceptable, the project partnership proposal is recommended to the CERIC Board for consideration. The Board makes decisions around proposal acceptance. Board decisions are final.
Letters of intent and proposals are considered on the basis of merit, degree of alignment with CERIC’s goals and availability of CERIC resources.
How long is the review process?
The assessment and review process may take up to 16 weeks if no further details are required. If revisions or clarification are required, the process could take longer.
You can keep track of your submission within our process using the online portal.
What are the deadlines for submitting a Letter of Intent (LOI) or a Project Partnership Application?
In the spirit of innovation, letters of intent and Project Partnership Applications are accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis.
Can I submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) or Project Partnership Application in English or French?
Letters of intent as well as Project Partnership Applications may be submitted in English or French.
How will I know my Letter of Intent has been received?
You will be notified via a system generated email that your LOI has been successfully submitted. The email will be sent to the PRINCIPAL CONTACT indicated in your LOI submission.
How will I know if my Project Partnership Application has been accepted or declined?
Once you have completed your Project Partnership Application, and hit SUBMIT, you will be notified via a system generated email that your submission has been successfully received. You will be contacted via the online portal should further clarification to your Application be required.
You will be contacted via a system generated email as to the status of your Application, once received and reviewed. In the event that your application has been declined, there may be an opportunity to follow up with us around feedback. If your application is approved, you will also receive a formal letter with next steps. There is a Legal Agreement that needs to be negotiated and signed before formally moving forward with the project.
What do you do with Project Partnership Applications that are declined?
We do not release or make public in any way Project Partnership Applications that were not approved for support. CERIC keeps these applications on file for two years and then destroys them.
