Put Up?

I was checking the noun "stead" in your dictionary, and I found the following example sentence, in which the phrasal verb, "put up", has been used:

"An accurate representation of the facts was soon put up in its stead."

The use of "put up" to mean "submit" or "to present a proposal to a person or body for consideration or judgment" is a common usage in Singapore English. Has the phrasal verb now been accepted in Standard English, too?

Thank you very much
