Starting in July 2012, we will be piloting an electronic version of the Proposed Project Questionnaire for proposals submitted through Research Grants and Contracts. This tool is an extension of InfoEd. We expect to implement the ePPQ institution-wide in January 2013. Visit the ePPQ Questions page to learn more.

BudgetI have added a subcontractor to my proposal. but the $25,000 F&A calculation is not working properly?
If you use the 'Show/List' feature you'll notice that some proposals may be listed twice. This is a known InfoEd issue and it's being investigated. Only one proposal exists in the system; you may select either one to access the proposal.
I see other proposals of mine in the search results, but I didn't create them in InfoEd PD. Why is that?
The proposals you're creating in InfoEd Proposal Development (PD) all begin with the number '1'. Because RGC uses another InfoEd module (Proposal Tracking [PT]) for tracking ALL proposals reviewed by RGC, you may see other proposals of yours beginning with '9' in your search results. These were entered by RGC for previous submissions, and there is no action required on your part for these proposals beginning with '9'.
After I've created my proposal, it displays as a "Non-Competing Renewal" when I try to open it back up. How do I fix this?
This issue is a display error and has been logged with InfoEd. As long as the 424 face page contains the correct application type (see box 8), the application is correct and will be appropriately identified by NIH.
The likely cause is that two or more individuals are logged into that proposal. Only one user may be making edits at a time. When you are initially opening up the proposal, look for a yellow checkbox underneath the folder icon. If one is present, it means that someone else is in the proposal and you will be unable to make edits. To see who is in the proposal, click on the checkbox. Remember to always click the 'Done' button when closing out of proposals.
If you're creating a proposal for what was formerly known as an 'unsolicited' or 'investigator-initiated' R01, the new term is 'Parent'. On the New Proposal Questionnaire in the SPIN search field type in "Parent R01" to find the right PA (PA-07-070). Please note that it is R01 with a zero, not a letter 'o'.

I have added a subcontractor to my proposal, but the $25,000 F&A calculation is not working properly?
This is a known issue in the system that InfoEd is working on resolving. In the meantime, you can fix this by selecting a different F&A scheme from the dropdown at the top and saving. Then set the F&A scheme back to the appropriate value and save. Now the F&A should be calculating the $25,000 correctly.
Why can't I access the Reviewer Dashboard from the email InfoEd sent?
When trying to access the Reviewer Dashboard from within the GroupWise emails, "View as HTML" must be enabled in order for the hyperlinks to function properly. From within the email, click on 'View' and ensure that 'HTML' is selected rather than 'Plain Text'. Otherwise, the reviewer will get an access-related error message.
You need to add any required approvers that previously signed the paper PPQ. Since each department is different, the PI or Department Admin creating the route will need to identify those individuals whose electronic signatures are required. The GCA will validate that all appropriate signatures have been obtained.
After a proposal has been submitted to route for review and approval, changes to the proposal (except for science on the Research Plan) may not be made until the route reaches the Grants & Contracts Administrator (GCA). The GCA will unlock the proposal when modifications can be made. This lockdown is required in order to ensure that all reviewers/approvers access the same proposal. It will also eliminate issues reviewers/approvers have if accessing a proposal where changes were made. Please contact your GCA to discuss your options and the appropriate time for changes to be made.
