Proposal Management: Copy PAF Info to Grants.gov Form (Automapping)

Overview

The Copy PAF Info to Grants-gov Forms activity copies relevant fields entered on the PAF Worksheet, as well as standard institutional information, to the Grants.gov forms.

Important Information

  • To take advantage of copying information from the PAF to supported Grants.gov forms, complete your PAF before your Grants.gov forms.
  • You can copy information from the PAF to Grants.gov forms at any time. You may choose to complete the PAF Worksheet first and check for errors (Hide/Show Errors) before copying information.
  • Certain PAF questions are mapped to the Grants.gov forms. Data is transferred only from the PAF to the Grants.gov forms. You cannot copy information from Grants.gov forms back to the PAF Worksheet.
  • If you make a change to the PAF Worksheet, it is not automatically updated in the Grants.gov forms. You need to use the Copy PAF Info to Grants.gov Forms activity to update this information. It will not reset your Grants.gov forms, but only update the fields mapped for the PAF.
  • It is not recommended that you edit Grants.gov forms before copying PAF information. If you do, you may overwrite fields that are mapped from the PAF Worksheet when you complete the Copy PAF to Grants.gov Form activity.
  • Complete your Grants.gov forms as early as possible.
