    I do believe under NFPA 1981 2007 CBRNE is required anyways. The SCBA have to be certified to NIOSH's Statement of Standard for NIOSH CBRN SCBA Testing.

    I know prior to 2007 that we needed State approval if we wanted CBRNE rated equipment, but I believe that would be not the case now. But that's my interpretation, but in any case no request was made for CBRNE SCBA.

    I had a client yesterday that had been waiting since Decemeber and they finally posted new budget and 1199a on same day.Chances could be that they are just behind schedule in working their way through the pile. I cannot see any correlation on an SCBA project, unlike what we are seeing with VES.I think you are still good to go here Andy,patience is a killer though.

    Couldn't finish my original post.....flooded basement calls.

    Definately strange, as this is the only Ops application that has done this. I'm just sitting back and waiting.

    Since budget adjustments or reductions only occur in tech review, it makes no sense that they would be even messing with their budget unless they had passed computer scoring and peer, since they would simply recieve a DJ notice if rejected at either phase.

    I mean they have enough to do already and why would they adjust a budget for which they had no intention of awarding? I beleive what is going on is that when they decide that a reducation of some level is called for they pull the sheet and when they do , it zeroes everything until they re-insert it with their recomendations.

    So far, and caution that with "so far", any of my 10-12 cleints that have found their budgets zeroed have eventually had the budget page restored with lower amounts and they have ben funded, albeit at a lesser amount.

    Smokediver, hang in there I still think and am confident that you have a great grant, it will be awraded and you will be doing a happy dance soon.
    Thanks Kurt for your input just hope everything works out it was just really confusing see that we had the 1199 posted and the budget zero and then a few weeks later the 1199 disappear but hopefully will will heard some news on it soon. Just hope we hear something soon because the guys are driving me nuts waiting to hear.

    Man if I had an 1199 show up and then it disappeared, I would be totally freaking! Sometimes I think AFG does that to us on purpose just to watch us squirm!

    Smokediver it is freaking me out completely not know what is going on now. So I have moved on to working on the 2010 AFG but about got the keyboard worn out still checked to see if the 1199 has reappeared but have not seen or heard anything yet. Still have the fingers crossed....
