Presentation Transcript

  1. Grants.gov (With thanks to the Research Offices of UW-Madison and Union College, who gave permission to make use of their presentation materials)

  2. What is Grants.gov? • Federal government’s solution for a "one stop shop" for finding and applying for funding (26 agencies). • Will replace federal agency-specific proposal submission systems. • NSF will still have Fastlane, NIH will still have eRA Commons, etc. for post-submission functions.

  3. Will My Federal Funding Agency use Grants.gov? • Agencies slow to shift. • OMB tied the agencies’ federal appropriations to their use of Grants.gov.

  4. Today • ORSP: Overview of process • You: Questions • ORSP: Research answers Later

  5. DO NOT REGISTER. UWEC is registered.

  6. Searching

  7. FON or CFDA (Catalogue of Federal Domestic Assistance)

  8. Select >1 in any category using control key

  9. Search Alternatives • more than feds • www.cos.com

  10. Search Alternatives • SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network)

  11. Download to Your Computer • Application materials • Software

  12. PureEdge Viewer (ICS Viewer) • Download software to your computer • Download application package, rename it with your name, the agency and the due date • Complete the application on your computer

  13. Entered CFDA

  14. Application Package Notification Download both

  15. Application Instructions Read both the regular RFP guidelines and these. Mismatches have been found between these instructions and the form instructions. Note different instructions for different agencies

  16. Grants.gov-speak • FOA (Funding Opportunity Announcement) = RFP/RFA (Request for Proposals or Applications. • Component = a form. • Application package = all components needed for a particular FOA. • SF424 (R&R) (Standard Form 424 (Research & Related)) = The first form – info on this form populates other forms. • E-Business POC (Point of Contact) and AOR (Authorized Organizational Representative) = ORSP.

  17. Application Package Concept Application package (PureEdge file) is like a manila file folder with the label already printed and a group of mandatory, blank, forms inside. Application-Specific Forms Some forms will ask you to upload/attach pdf documents (science, biosketch, etc.) CFDA 47.050 Application Package (PureEdge file)

  18. You are not online anymore Check for correct grant package Yellow = required field

  19. Open form, complete, move to right

  20. Components for R & R • Required • R&R Application cover component (SF424) • R&R Project/Performance Site Location(s) • R&R Other Project Information • R&R Senior/Key Person • R&R Budget • R&R Personal Data • Optional, where appropriate • R&R Subaward Budget Attachment Form

  25. Other direct costs Indirect costs Attach budget justification

  26. Ready to Submit? • 2 options • Upload the PureEdge file to \\fs3\grantssh$and let ORSP know it is there (log out and back on to Windows before mapping to this drive) • Put it on a memory stick or CD and bring it to ORSP

  27. After Submission • E-mails arrive: • Grants.gov acknowledges submission • Grants.gov validates submission • Agency acknowledges download from G.g • Agency assigns a tracking number • Any errors found must be changed before the submission deadline • DO NOT submit at the last minute • DO NOT disappear after initial submission

  28. Tips for Success • Start early • Use Internet Explorer and a Windows environment • Read instruction package carefully – agency instructions vary • Ask ORSP for help • Save often • Submit early

  29. Macintosh Users Warning • PureEdge does not work on a Mac • You can use “Citrix” running remotely with your Mac as a terminal. Others have encountered many problems. • If you decide to use a Mac we need EVEN MORE lead time as you would be our guinea pig.

  30. Problems OTHERS Have Had • When saving, file does not overwrite and generates new file each time • Grants.gov accepts package (and you think you are done) but agency does not • Mac instructions actually do not work • Online system is so overloaded near a deadline that submission is significantly delayed • And more

  31. A Plea • UWEC has submitted 3 grants through Grants.gov, mostly without difficulty • The Research Officers listserv is FULL of Grants.gov horror stories, although they seem to be decreasing • PLEASE give ORSP maximum possible lead time to be able to assist you well
