Overview If a PAF was sent back to the Project Team for Changes or as Incomplete, and that needs to be rescinded, then ORSP PR or Staff can use the Revoke Change Request activity to cancel the requested changes to the PAF/Proposal or undo an "Incomplete". This activity is only available in the state of "ORSP Review - Project Team Making Changes". Important If a proposal is "Incomplete", revoking the change request restores the PAF status as "Finalized" and restores the PAF's ORSP Review Type.
Overview If a PAF is in a state of "ORSP Administrative Review", "Project Representative Review", "Signing Officer Review", "ORSP Approved", or "Project Team Requests Action", then ORSP PR or Staff can use the Send to Project Team for Changes activity to request changes to the PAF/Proposal, or to return the PAF as Incomplete.

Overview Acknowledge is used to confirm that you are aware of the PAF changes that have been made after your approval, and that you do not wish to suspend your prior approval. This procedure assumes that you are already logged in to eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM). If you are not familiar with the login procedure, refer to the Log in to eResearch Proposal Management.
New style of Help for PAF HELP is provided on each page of the PAF Worksheet. See Index of Additional Help. When editing a PAF, Help will no longer appear in the blue box on the right-hand side of the smart-form.

1.1.2 Long Title The Long Title is for proposal titles that are more than 256 characters.
1.3 Is this a funding opportunity? Brief directions are included below. For more information, see from eRPM (includes full process instructions and illustrations of pages & steps.) Select "Yes" If the Funding Opportunity/Solicitation is available through, select "Yes" to this question to link the guidelines, forms and submission instructions to the proposal package.
1.4 Is this a pre-proposal? Why you should not change answer to this question after creating PAF Since this question determines the format of the PAF ID (ORSP Number), it is the only question that you should not change after you create a PAF. - FY-PAF12345 e.g., 19-PAF000123 or - FY-PRE12345 e.g., 19-PRE000123 The Proposal ID cannot be changed once a PAF is created.  If you need to change the PAF type, cancel your PAF and make a new PAF. It will create the appropriate new ID number.
