Workshops

AKSSF is offering a webinar on May 19 (9:00 – 11:00 a.m.) to help applicants understand the proposal development and project selection processes (please let me know if you wish to attend but cannot make this date). These workshops are a great opportunity to get your questions answered while learning how to avoid common proposal pitfalls. If you are interested in participating, please contact Debbie Maas (debbie.maas@alaska.gov/907-465-6134).

Administrative Pre-Review (Optional)

Proposals submitted by 12 noon Alaska Daylight Time on June 1st will undergo a courtesy administrative review by AKSSF staff to determine basic responsiveness to the requirements of the call as described in the "Responsiveness Criteria" section of the Call for Proposals Instructions. Proposals submitted after this deadline are not eligible for administrative pre-review. AKSSF staff will contact the project investigators via the email(s) provided through the proposal submission portal and either confirm basic responsiveness or list insufficiencies, usually the same day the proposal is submitted. Deficient proposals must be corrected and resubmitted on the proposal submission portal before the CFP deadline to be responsive to the CFP. The contents of the final submission will be the official documents/information used for the final review. The scope of administrative reviews is limited to the criteria outlined in the "Responsiveness Criteria” section in the Call for Proposals Summary; thus, AKSSF staff will NOT evaluate or provide suggestions to improve any other aspects such as: strengths and weaknesses of the proposal; grammar, spelling, punctuation, or mathematical errors; coherency, accuracy, completeness, clarity, or appropriateness of the proposal and budget documents; content of Federal Grant Management Capabilities Survey(s) and associated documents; or other qualitative characteristics. As you will have the opportunity to revise documents after the pre-review, we encourage you to utilize this service even if your proposal is not yet finalized.
