Proposal Type

Proposal Title (TBD)

Proposal Type

New: Represents an original funding request made to a sponsor for a proposed project. No prior proposal has been submitted to the sponsor for the proposed project and the sponsor has not previously made an award to support the proposed project.

Resubmission: Represents an application that was previously submitted, but was not funded, and is now being resubmitted for new consideration. A resubmission is generally submitted to make a significant change (e.g., scope of work, budget, facilities, subawards) to a previously submitted proposal not yet funded by the sponsor.

If Resubmission is selected, you will need to ensure that when you first created the proposal in SP, that you selected the option that say’s “This proposal is related to existing proposals or awards”.

Renewal: Represents a request for additional funding that is intended to extend, or results in the extension of, a project beyond the originally approved project period.

If Renewal is selected, you will need to ensure that when you first created the proposal in SP, that you selected the option that say’s “This proposal is related to existing proposals or awards”.

Continuation: Represents a non-competing application for an additional budget period within a previously approved project period. This proposal type is typically used when the sponsor commits to funding the entire project period but requires the submission of a continuation or progress report to monitor progress.

If Continuation is selected, you will need to ensure that when you first created the proposal in SP, that you selected the option that say’s “This proposal is related to existing proposals or awards”.

Revision: Represents a request to modify a proposal that is pending or is otherwise unfunded, but not officially declined by the sponsor.

If Revision is selected, you will need to ensure that when you first created the proposal in SP, that you selected the option that say’s “This proposal is related to existing proposals or awards”.


Supplement: Represents a request for additional funds to support an existing project during the same project period.

If Supplement is selected, you will need to ensure that when you first created the proposal in SP, that you selected the option that say’s “This proposal is related to existing proposals or awards”.

Pre-Proposal: Represents a preliminary proposal submitted to the sponsor in order to determine whether a full proposal should be subsequently submitted or to help the sponsor organize a full proposal review.
