Advance Contact Form

Please read all the information below BEFORE filling out the requested information below and submitting electronically by pressing the 'Send' button at the bottom of the screen.

This form may be used to indicate that you are interested in submitting a preliminary type of proposal. This includes all types of preliminary contact with a sponsor to include but not limited to: concept paper, while paper, talking paper, notice of intent, letter of intent, statement of interest/intent, preliminary proposal, and random order of magnitude.

If guidelines are available please read them.

You should not use this form (You should use a Proposal Information Sheet):

  • If the information being submitted involves detailed budget information (you may give an estimated total request but no category of spending breakdown)
  • If the information being submitted involves cost share, even if it is an estimated cost share figure.
  • If the preliminary type of submission does not involve a decision allowing you to proceed in a submission process.
For example, if the guidelines ask or require a Notice of Intent (NOI) before you can submit a full proposal, but you are not prevented from submitting a full proposal if you don't submit an NOI or you do not have to wait for an invitation or decision to proceed in order to submit the full proposal then you should not use this form.

NOTE: If the contact involving this form results in proceeding to a full proposal you will need to complete a Proposal Information Sheet.
