CDMRP replaces eReceipt System with eBrap
For FY14, CDMRP has replaced the eReceipt system with the electronic Biomedical Research Application Portal (eBRAP). Application submissions for CDMRP, more commonly recognized as Department of Defense (DOD), are a 2 step process that now requires (1) pre-application submission through the eBRAP system, and (2) the customary SF424 application submission through Grants.gov.
Investigators interested in applying for DOD funded grant opportunities must now create an eBrap registration. PIs can access the eBRAP home page at https://eBRAP.org/. All interested applicants will be required to register, and though it is not required before submission of a pre-application using eBrap, it is strongly encouraged that PIs request to be affiliated with MCW during registration.
NEW Post Submission Review Functionality and Verification Period
Invited applicants (PIs) who successfully submit a full proposal using the Grants.gov system can use the eBRAP system to modify the full application. During this verification period, the PI may upload missing files, replace files, and re‐categorize files. The Project Narrative and Budget cannot be changed after the application submission deadline. Any other application component cannot be changed after the end of the verification deadline. All modifications must be completed by the end of the verification period. The verification period is listed within the RFA.
The ability to view and modify the Grants.gov application in eBRAP is contingent upon the registration and affiliation of the PI with their institution in eBRAP. At this time MCW is only allowing PIs to register for a role in eBRAP. There are no roles currently available in the eBRAP system for an assistant or a secondary submitter that can be allowed by MCW for security reasons.
