Electronic Systems & Forms


InfoEd is Northwestern's enterprise electronic research administration tool for proposal submission and administration.  For more information, refer to the InfoEd page.



The Electronic Sponsored Projects Request (ESPR) system is designed to make completion of post-submission and post-award requests easier and also to allow electronic routing of requests throughout the University.  For more information, refer to the ESPR page.
*** As of November 1, 2014, ESPR use is mandatory for all request types available in the system. ***


While most sponsored program requests for OSR are routed electronically through InfoEd and ESPR, there are still a few items that must be completely manually using paper forms.
