Proposals received after the deadlines (11:59 p.m. C.S.T.) will be discussed at the next meeting (assuming that full committee review is required – exempt or expedited reviews could be completed in the interim). The chair or a subcommittee may be designated to verify that requested revisions have been completed. Approval of a revised project usually does not require waiting until the next scheduled teleconference.
