OCI conducts internal checks on all applications or Expressions of Interest (EOIs). These internal checks are undertaken after an application or EOI is submitted and must be approved before an application can move to the external review stage.
These internal checks are completed by OCI’s Business Development Managers and Program Managers and focus on eligibility, appropriateness for the program, financial compliance (i.e., appropriate budget items and use of funds), and application completeness.
Common areas that are flagged during the internal reviews include, but are not limited to:
|Type of OCI Internal Check||Items Reviewed|
|Application Completeness Review||
When an application requires revisions, an email will be sent to the applicant from AccessOCI@oc-innovation.ca detailing the required changes. Before an application can be deemed eligible to move forward, all revisions stated in the email must be addressed.
