S2S Functionality for HRSA Proposals

OSP has received several requests to clarify HRSA proposal submission processes in light of the recent discontinuation of Adobe Application Packages. Applicants may have noticed the following language in HRSA program announcements: “Effective December 31, 2017: You must use the Grants.gov Workspace to complete the workspace forms and submit your workspace application package. After this date, you will no longer be able to use the PDF Application Packages.” Please note, however, that with few exceptions, HRSA program announcements work and will continue to work with Coeus, VUMC’s system-to-system (S2S) solution. OSP recommends that all applicants attempt to utilize Coeus first before initiating an application within Workspace. The use of Workspace will only be approved as an application submission mechanism if and only if Coeus is unable to submit the application.  For questions or concerns, please contact your OSP specialist.
