    Thumbs down FPS DJ found this morning

    This is not exactly what I wanted to wake up to ...

    We received our DJ notice this morning for our FPS application. The letter indicated that we were scored well by peer review but that I need to improve our financial need statement and our project sustainability plan.

    Looks like it is back to the drawing table with this proposal for the 2008 application. You can bet I will improve those two areas and have this one ready to go when the application window opens.

    Jon,

    They went out yesterday. FP&S had more than 2,500 applications and so far only 216 have been awarded. Not alot of money in this pot.

    I don't know and maybe this is just a senior moment but does anyone actually remember a round of DJs for 07 FP&S going out on 5/1/08? I had several clients call me in last month saying the had not recived DJs on 07 FP&S and then this morning when we looked they had an old mail from 5/1/08 with a DJ letter. Not a single one remembers receiving this thourgh their nromal email nor having a "new message" display on the log in page from back then.

    Yes, 1st round PR DJs came out then. Folks probably didn't get it in the personal email, but they were posted on the app web site.

    sooo.... no dear john letter, but no 1199a yet either... I know somebody at FEMA and they looked up my app on their system and it made it through the peer review. Anybody know if this is a good thing or not? Any help would be appreciated.

    You need to check the "mail center" in your online application and look under "old messages" and be sure that a DJ was not sent that somehow you did not see. Most if not all the 07 FP&S money is gone now so I would be very surprised if you were going to get an awrad at this late date.
