Format in which proposals can be submitted

Proposals must be submitted via Grants.Gov either by the Kuali Coeus Proposal System to System interface with Grants.Gov or directly into Grants.Gov. Proposals may also be submitted via email.

For electronic submissions in Grants.Gov, all appropriate fields are to be filled out in accordance with BAA Instructions.

Normally the Sponsor will contact the RAS Liaison regarding any issues with validations, or any other proposal questions regarding the SOW or budget. Historically ARL Proposals do not fail validations as ARL does not have stringent validation requirements like other federal agencies (i.e. NIH).
