The Request for Proposal Approval and Submission form(familiarly known as the Goldenrod form) is the UCLA internal form used by Contracts and Grants Administration for the review of applications or proposals submitted to extramural funding agencies.

We have made available for download a nifty application that helps you to fill out and complete a goldenrod form. It is available for Windows PC users only.

There is an interactive pdf version of the goldenrod available on the Contract and Grants website, but we prefer that staff use the goldenrod application described here.
