The required first steps in the funding process are an in-person orientation meeting with staff and discussion of a short pre-proposal with the CPC at one of its regular public meetings.
For the Fy18 funding round, sponsors were required to request orientation meetings by April 2017 and submit pre-proposals by May 2017. Full proposals that were invited by the CPC based on these pre-proposal discussions are due by 2 October 2017.
Sponsors are strongly encouraged to request orientation meetings and submit pre-proposals well ahead of the deadlines for their target funding round. The CPC has more time for thoughtful discussion of early pre-proposals, which can also help the Committee consider reserving current funds for future use.
