Canceling Proposal Development Documents
Proposal Development documents can be cancelled before being placed in routing. Once a document is routed it can't be cancelled. Instead, the next Approver in the routing chain should click on the Disapprove button.
Use of the AdHoc Approver Option
A reminder that use of the Adhoc Approver option is discouraged. Normally it is more appropriate to add the Unit to the Other IU Units sub-panel in the Proposal Tab > Organization/Location panel.
We are currently working on improving the Output Forms for printing a budget and printing basic proposal information. Look for improvements in these output forms in the near future!

results in faster performance.
Performance Site DUNS Number in Grants.gov
If you have a performance site that does not have a DUNS number then enter the site in the Performance Site panel. If the performance site does have a DUNS number then the data should be entered in the Other Organizations panel. If the DUNS number still does not populate the form, please contact your Grant Services Administrator to have it added to the system.
Unallocated Cost Share Validation Warning
Once the Budget Status is marked Complete/Final, a validation warning message may appear that states, "The unallocated cost share amount may exceed the cost share included in the budget." Please click the Fix button to verify the Unallocated Amount. If the Unallocated Amount is $0.00, submit the proposal into routing. If the Unallocated Amount has parenthesis around it, i.e. ($500.00), you may want to edit this amount. The Budget Status must be changed back to Incomplete before editing can occur.
*Please note this is a validation warning message only. It will not prevent the proposal from being submitted into routing*
Unallocated Cost Share Error
Cost Share Error – Some people have had the KC system indicating that unallocated cost share exists, even when cost share has been allocated. We are working on fixing this issue.
