InfoEd Proposal Development 4/1/12 Mandatory Implementation

last updated 09/03/13

Starting 4/1/12, InfoEd Proposal Development (PD) will be required for the internal routing and approval of all sponsored research projects (grants and contracts.) In addition, most grant proposals that would normally be prepared using Adobe forms and submitted via Grants.gov will need to be prepared in, routed, and submitted using PD (no adobe forms necessary). The chart below details types of proposals and the tools required for their preparation and submission.
