    Default 2011 1199a's.... there here!

    On of my students found a fresh 1199a update for 2011 dated from yesterday. Looks like AFG is planning on an early Xmas for many! Let the searching begin. New turnouts, first timer for them.

    Well it is very early but this is a good sign that AFG is getting things rolling along early.

    Nothing on my end. Would have thought there would have been more than one notice out there.

    Found nothing on my end.

    Kurt,

    Any chance that it was a reference to 2010 for a supplemental grant?

    Just an FYI, it appears that 1199As will be the only indication of a pending award this year. No 10Qs are supposed to precede an award. You may receive a call or e-mail to complete previous closeouts or CCR registration which could be a potential indication.

    There is a big movement to have awards begin within 3 weeks and be completed by January 31st to prepare to have the grants schedule back in line for April. The 2012 Program Guidance is already being developed.

    I'll have to sit down, relax and stop the impulse of hitting refresh every 5 seconds.

    Let me assure everyone, it was a 2011 AFG, (Reference Award Number: EMW-2011-FO-00138), I looked at it online twice and walked them through printing it out . It was to update their 1199a as they would be a first time award winner.

    we got a call last week in reference to our 2008 afg closeout, which was completed in 2009, but they couldnt understand the math. award was for $85k, we paid out $91k (we paid the difference), so we had to do a breakdown for that. Is that a possibility they are looking at our stuff for an 2011 afg award maybe? i sure hope so.

    That may be a good sign as they would want those things cleared up before an awrad was given and they catch those things at tech review stage. Would not plan a party yet but, it may be a good sign you will just have to do like the rest of us and keep your fingers crossed and wait them out.

    OK, I need some help.....I have never written a grant before the 2 AFG's this year. I took a grant writing class at our local CC, and it sure as hell never prepared me for something like this. I remember reading a while back about checking the budget area of your app, though I cant remember why. I noticed that the vehicle app displayed different figures than my original. The Equipment line was reduced by 7500, the Fed Share was reduced by 7125, and our share was reduced by 375. Is this what is considered a reduction? What else should I monitor?

    That would be considered a reduction.

    I have posted other areas to monitor as well.

    Default Another Key Event Has Occurred Meaning awards are Near!

    Another action has taken place which must occur prior to awards commencing. The notice from AFG regarding the AFG program was published in the Federal Register yesterday (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011...2011-29500.pdf). This is one of the key events that must occur prior to awards commencing and is a good sign that awards will start quite soon.

    P.S.- Heads-up for those of us who take the time to thoroughly "read between the lines"! There is some interesting information in there that will be of concern for next year concerning requirements and priorities that were recommended to occur in 2011 but, were not able to be instituted this year for one reason or another. You can pretty much count on the fact that those things mentioned will have a influence on next years application scoring. I have already added it to my class curriculum for upcoming seminars.
