Electronic Proposal Submissions for Applications to Federal Agencies

The U.S. Office of Management and Budget has directed all 26 federal granting agencies to begin transitioning from paper to electronic proposal/grant submissions through the portal.   Each agency has a different timeline and implementation strategy.  Be sure to check agency websites frequently for updated information.  (See selected agency websites below.)

Due to new agency business procedures and delays experienced with the new web-based system, PIs must submit the entire final complete proposal and the Proposal Clearance Form to their Grants Management Specialist at least five working days before the deadline, rather than the usual three.  This is necessary because both and the funding agency conduct an electronic check of all applications.  Identified errors must be corrected by the PI and resubmitted by the Sponsored Programs Grants Administration Office (formerly Grants Management) to before the original deadline.  Otherwise, the proposal will not progress to peer review

Follow all instructions carefully.  Each application package is tailored for a specific funding opportunity and includes specialized forms and instructions.
