    Default lost the regional bid

    Well we got the DJ for our Regional Project, with an explaination that our Finan. Need was not complete enough; yet rest of our project was ok.

    Soooo its back to the drawing board, and this next app will have more numbers in it than the 1st super computer.

    Good luck to all who are still in the running

    Recieved our DJ this morning. "Did not provide compelling information on cost/benefit". When I submitted I felt pretty good about it even though we were asking for relatively low priority items. (Swiftwater and dive gear) We will go back and review and resubmit. Nobody's fault but ours. Good luck to everyone still in the running!

    We also received a DJ today...requested an emegency generator for the station, TIC, washer/extractor and much needed fire hose...did we request too many different items? we were successful in 2004 and 2005, so can't complain..................

    steelman, yes and no. No in that it made Peer, but yes in that it would have been a tough fight since you had to write 4 complete narratives to do the job they needed to score it well.

    Looks like DJs coming in waves, gonna make me run through my logins again...

    Yeah, but if you lose it in a field...improves your chances for next year!! Glad to see you have a good attitude about it, that's a right thing.

    As you may have picked up, our department is hosting Kurt (ktb) Bradley in early March. It would be great to get you and AFD2181 here for that. LaPorte, IN can't be too far from Pontoon Beach!! (of course you might feel differently once you get here. )

    Well I am excited about the possibility of getting the grant......we have applied since the beginning with no luck at all...... I just wish I knew what made our grant stick out this year as compared to the past couple years....

    You have to good attitude because you can't do anything about it. We are 1 for 2 so I can't complain too much, but it would of been nice.

    How much longer before the Peer Review DJ's are done? Are there multiple rounds?

    There are multiple rounds. My feeling is there are 1 to 2 more rounds of DJ's for those departments that made it to PR, but lacked compelling arguments in 1 or more areas of the narrative. I'm thinking 1 round where departments scored well, but just came up short for funding. Those are the ones that have the possibility of being funded if supplemental funds become available.

    Got our DJ yesterday. It did make it to peer.. and you are right. I did some bad copy and pasting and left out #2... the financial info on our dept.

    The DJ said everything else was justified,
    I feel like a totol idiot.. I dint even realize I left that out until I got the DJ and went back and read my narrative.
    I had read it a dozen times and just plain out didnt see it out when I hit submit...
    Good news is next year is looking really GREAT... Because I will have that info in !!..
    I hope some pple that read this learn somthing from a very costly mistake to our dept..

    Does not look like they sent out any updates to 1199As or 10 questions today and they may be taking a break for the holidays so looks like we will have to wait till next week I guess before seeing anything in this area.
