Pre-application content and forms must be accessed and submitted by the PI at eBRAP (https://ebrap.org)
Pre-proposal/Letter of Intent instructions:
Affiliate with “Massachusetts, University of, Amherst” as a PI in eBRAP before submitting a pre-application.
When completing a pre-application, select “James Ayres” as the Business Official.
The PI submits the letter of intent or the pre-application directly instead of through OPAS, so no IPF is needed.
An email notification of the submission will be sent to the contacts listed in the pre-application.
Pre-application screening results showing invitation status are posted in eBRAP. The PI will receive a notification that it has been posted.
Partnering PI Option: After the Initiating PI submits the pre-application the Partnering PI will receive a link via email to assign the Organization and Business Official to their portion of the pre-application. This link is valid up until the pre-application deadline. After the deadline please send this information to the eBRAP Helpdesk and they will input the information.
Once the pre-proposal or letter of intent is submitted by the PI, eBRAP will assign an eBRAP log number to the proposal. This number is required to be on the full proposal application, so you will need it at the full proposal stage.
For all pre-proposals, please use this address:
100 Venture Way
Suite 201 Hadley, MA 01003-9450
For all pre-proposals, please use the OPAM email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We must use this address, because at the full proposal stage, grants.gov full proposals can only be submitted under this address, and the pre-proposal and full proposal must use the same information. Please see the warning below:
Please note: The application title, eBRAP log number, and all information for the PI, Business Official(s), performing organization, and contracting organization must be consistent throughout the entire pre-application and full application submission process. Inconsistencies may delay application processing and limit or negate the ability to view, modify, and verify the application in eBRAP. If any changes need to be made, the applicant should contact the CDMRP Help Desk at help@eBRAP.org or 301-682-5507 prior to the application submission deadline.
For specific instructions regarding content of the pre-application submission components, refer to the Program Announcement.
For specific instructions on how to submit each pre-application component, please the DOD general application instructions.
Click “Submit” and “Confirm Submission” to complete the pre-application submission.
Submitted pre-applications may be set to draft status prior to the pre-application deadline. eBRAP will submit documents that are still in draft status at the end of the pre-application deadline.
