SF424 (Grants.gov) Application Enhancements

Adding support for new “Package ID” required for submissions to Grants.gov starting October 10, 2018

  • A new unique identifier, called the Package ID, will be added to every Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) in Grants.gov.
  • The Package ID will be required on all Grants.gov submissions for NIH (and their eRA partners such as AHRQ, FDA, etc.) effective 10/10/2018 and for all other applications submitted through Grants.gov effective 10/22/2018.

There is no action required by U-M PI/Project Teams. The only change you may notice is a new number next to the FOA field on the SF424 workspace.

Adding the ability to manually edit the display order for various SF424 attachments

If the sponsor allows multiple attachments for a section, you can now edit the order in which they are displayed. Some of the forms changed include: Budget Narrative Attachments, Project Narrative Attachments, and SF424 Other Attachments.
