Proposal Development Resources

Proposal forms for major funders

Most government agencies have transitioned to or are preparing to transition to a common set of proposal documentation — the SF424 (RR) family (Standard Form, Research and Related). DOD, DOE, DOT, EPA, NASA, NIH and many other federal funders use some or all of the SF424 family. Check your funding solicitation to see if it is part of the SF424 family.

Proposal Development Resources

NOTE — PDF files with fillable form fields are encountering known browser issues with Chrome and Firefox — you must download the form first, then open it from the file system as a document, before it will display, function and save correctly. Downloading it and opening it in Chrome, for example, will not allow you to view the document properly.

Items marked with an asterisk (*) have been pre-populated with University of Idaho information.

Where Do I Submit My Proposal?

Always follow the directions in the funding solicitation — they supersede all other information sources regarding your proposal. Some federal funders have proprietary proposal submission websites (e.g., NEUP, EERE) but most can be submitted through a variety of web portals:

  • Grants.gov – the federal government’s primary grant submissions system. Not fancy but it works.
  • Research.gov – NSF’s new proposal submission and management online system. Being rolled out in sections.
  • Cayuse – Cayuse is a commercial software product to which the U of I subscribes. It has a more modern user interface than Grants.gov and FastLane, but it's advanced error checking routines are far superior. Most but not all federal grant opportunities are available through Cayuse, with more added every week.

The Grants and Contract Specialist recommends using Cayuse for its all-around better user experience.

These proposal support resources are intended as a guide to facilitate proposal development. It is the proposer’s responsibility to ensure that the funding solicitation requirements are satisfied in the response.
