When searching for sponsor names it's good practice to use the asterisk* to pull a complete list of returned results.
We recently had a USDA proposal returned for correction because the names of the pdf files included .doc (e.g. ProjectNarrative.doc.pdf). Please make sure attachment names do not include special characters, as well as extra periods.
Descriptions for Proposal Attachments
The Description field located in the Proposal Attachment panel does not allow special characters or hard stops (i.e. you cannot click enter within the field to add a second line of text). This does not cause a validation error or warning, however when OSP tries to submit the proposal to Grants.gov we receive an error upon submission. Please do not use special characters or hard stops within this field.
