If an entity is not available in UTHealth Start, submit a Sponsor & Subcontract Request form to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that processing sponsor and subcontractor requests usually takes 2 - 3 business days, depending on the screening/verification process.
While waiting for a new sponsor, you may select the "Default Sponsor" as a placeholder.
However, for a new subcontractor, you must wait for the subcontractor profile to be set up before you can add the subcontractor and subcontract budget information to UTHealth START. Please plan accordingly.
What can make processing take longer?
Most commonly - though not an exclusively - the following features can cause screening an entity to take longer:
- Incomplete Access Form
- Foreign entity
- Not much official / publicly available info
- Entity is unresponsive/slow to respond
