Once an Opportunity is linked the Forms Panel will populate with all the associated forms contained in the give opportunity. This includes Mandatory and Optional forms. Below outlines navigating the Forms panel but also be sure to read your RFP instructions for guidance on form completion.
- Form Name: Lists the forms by name & version number. Also, these forms are clickable and will pull down the fillable pdf form from Grants.gov which can be useful if you need to upload as a user attached.
- Mandatory: Describes if the form is required (mandatory) or optional
- Include: Defaults to Yes for mandatory form; click an individual checkbox to include an optional form. Also, the Include column header can be selected to provide the options to Select All and Select None.
- Description: Status of the s2s form; Available means the form and version are maintained for s2s submission from Kuali proposal data.Unavailable means that the form and/or version is not maintained by Kuali proposal data. If unavailable you can upload unsupported forms via the User Attached Forms process if the unstitched forms can be obtained from Grants.gov.
- Select: Click the individual checkboxes to determine the forms to preview in the PDF format (then click the 'Created PDF' button). You can also click the Select column header to provide the options to Select All and Select None. Be aware that user attached forms cannot be printed from the Forms panel; those must be printed separately from the user attached panel.
- Create XML: This button allows you to generate the XML of the forms checked in the 'Select' column to preview what will be transmitted via S2S.
- Create PDF: This button allows you to generate a PDF preview of the forms checked in the 'Select' column.
- NIH e-Application: This button will go out to the eCommons image service to generate a PDF on how the application will generate/compile at eCommons. Be aware that this may take a several seconds to compile after clicking the button so you may need to be patient. Also, after submit the compiled image on how it was transmitted to eCommons will be retained to the database if needed. Please also note that the Appendix attachment is not included in the compiled file at NIH eCommons so it will also not be included in the file generated when clicking the 'NIH e-Application'. This functionality requires NIH Validation Service to be enabled.
