    Default Items removed from grant request with 2012 1199

    Found a new 1199 and upon reviewing the grant request, multiple items were listed as zero quantities and cost in the grant request. Obviously there were quantities and costs there when it was submitted. Does this mean they were removed and the remaining items will be the only thing awarded should this go through?

    Basically, yes. It could be a technical reduction, or most likely if you submitted multiple project areas, those areas did not make it to peer review. In year's past, the entire application would have been voided, but now they will simply reduce any portion of a grant that failed computer scoring.

    When did the 1199A show up?

    I found it yesterday. Is there any way to compel the grant specialist to reevaluate the items removed? Who would you contact?

    i would call and try to explain that the removed items were essential projects. in 2011 I made a call and within about 4 minutes they reinstated 17000. Definatly wont the call. cant hurt to try.

    You can call know but sometimes you'll get the "well nothing is official" statement, which just means call back after the award is annouced. With the new system of just announcing then handling the formar 10 Question part there will be a specific grants manager to call and discuss things with. It may have been removed at the Tech Review point meaning someone didn't understand what things were or why they are all part of the project, or Peer might have said don't fund these parts because they weren't justified in the narrative. Either way it's always worth asking the questions.

    I am already hearing through the state that a number of applications have been adjusted or will be denied because of communications equipment that is NOT P25, and passed CAP.

    There are going to be some upset areas that wanted to add departments or equipment to a MotoTRBO or NXDN system.
