Timelines and Deadlines

Global IDEAS is able to offer its services based on the amount of lead time we receive before a proposal is due; with more lead time, we can offer more assistance.

Global IDEAS and OSP Timeline and Deadlines

Contact Global IDEAS as soon as your team decides it may want our support. We cannot guarantee we will be able to provide services to proposals with impending deadlines.
