FAQs: Grants.gov / S2S

Why can’t I see the User Attached Form when I print/preview my Kuali Coeus prepared S2S Grants.gov application?

User Attached forms will only display from the proposal’s S2S Opportunity Search screen’s User Attached Forms tab. Select the Action dropdown under Actions column for the listed attached document. Select View PDF to display.

The user attached form will be listed on the proposal’s S2S Opportunity Search screen’s Forms tab with a radio button to select for purposes of creating a PDF. However, the form will not display from here. In order to view navigate to the User Attached Forms tab as instructed above.

Do I need to request AOR status from Grants.gov?

AOR status is not necessary in order to download or prepare an Adobe forms application package. MIT is fully registered with grants.gov and the required AOR role is held by the RAS Sponsor Liaisons and or credentialed CAs who submit the proposals to grants.gov. Neither DLC users nor their PI needs to register with grants.gov.

To search for an application package in Grants.gov, go to www.grants.gov and choose “Search Grants”, and then enter the Funding Opportunity # or CFDA Number. Please note, before downloading an application, you should check that you have the correct version of Adobe by following the instructions under the "Verifying Adobe Reader" section under the Support tab.

How can I tell if my S2S proposal has passed through the Grants.gov system?

If the proposal was submitted via Kuali Coeus to Grants.gov System to System (S2S) you can check the status in Kuali Coeus by opening the development proposal, going to the S2S Opportunity Search tab. Then click on the Submission Detail sub tab for the status. You can also click refresh for the most recent update.

If the proposal was submitted by an RAS liaison or credentialed CA from an Adobe package, you should check with the submitter as they would have received the emails from grants.gov and are able to log in to check status at grants.gov.

How can I print/preview my Kuali Coeus prepared S2S Grants.gov application?

  1. Open the proposal
  2. Navigate to the S2S Opportunity Search, Forms subpanel.
  3. Select all the Mandatory and Optional forms wanted to print/preview
  4. Click Create PDF to compile the PDF file of the Grants.gov Forms.
  5. Save the file to your computer.

Note: As sponsor systems may reassemble the grants.gov application elements in a different order to meet their internal standards, we cannot match all the sponsors' specific application ordering. 

How do I print out a full version of a System to System (S2S) proposal?

You can print the forms from the Grants.gov window.

Some federal agencies allow you to download/print exactly what the sponsor sees once the application is submitted via Grants.gov and retrieved by the agency. For instance, for NIH your PI will be able to log in to the NIH Commons and view the grant image exactly as the reviewers will see it. As sponsor systems may each reassemble the grants.gov application elements in a different order to meet their internal standards, we cannot match all the sponsors' specific application ordering.

Will Kuali Coeus replace NSPIRES for submission of NASA grant proposals?

NASA is still transitioning, but more opportunities are being posted on Grants.gov, which means it could be an opportunity to use Kuali Coeus for s2s submission. The Kuali Coeus team has put several NASA-specific forms into the MIT Production environment, and we have successfully submitted to NASA via Kuali Coeus s2s.
