KNOWN ISSUES

1. When accessing Grants Online using Internet Explorer 11, there is a performance issue.
To retrieve instructions to address the issue CLICK HERE.

2. To successfully open one or more non-PDFs (e.g., Word, Excel) embedded within a PDF file, the user must modify the Adobe Acrobat settings. For instructions to address the issue CLICK HERE.

3. Browser/technology problems: Limitations of using Grants Online with some browsers/technology.
To view identified limitations CLICK HERE.

4. CBS ERROR: The ASAP details account cannot have more than 100 lines; ASAP awards made since 2015 (with the exception of CI awards) are set up using "Control-Detail" accounts for ASAP and cannot have more than 100 accounting lines during the life of the award. To view additional guidelines on the Treasury ASAP website CLICK HERE and use the Search icon to locate "TAS Distribution Methods."

5. Issue with Delinquent SAC Notifications: Currently the Grants Online system will send out a delinquent notification to grant recipients if an Award Action Request (AAR) to "Satisfy Specific Conditions" has not been approved by a Grants Officer by the DUE DATE listed on the award, even if the AAR has been submitted to the Federal Agency in time. This function will be changed in a future release to check for the submission date instead of the approval date, but until that change can be made grant recipients can ignore the system generated delinquency message if the AAR has been submitted on time.

6. Financial Closeout/De-Obligation Notification: Information in the financial closeout/de-obligation notification is inaccurate. An excerpt from the 3rd paragraph of the notification is shown below:

      The amount of funds identified as a federal outlay on your Final SF-425 Full {Amount from Line 10g}
      does not agree with the amount of funds disbursed to you as determined by the Federal Accounting System
      {Amount from the CBS Interface}.


Currently, because EDA Awards are not interfaced with CBS the value for the {Amount from the CBS Interface} will always display as $0.00. The language for this notification will be updated to take into consideration the different technical processes used by each Department of Commerce Bureau.

7. Printout of the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR): If the person preparing the RPPR uses carriage returns (i.e., presses the enter key at the end of a line of text) all 4,000 characters allocated to store the responder’s narrative may not be visible in a printed version of the RPPR. To ensure all 4,000 charters are visible, refrain from using the enter key to advance to the next line. If this guidance is not adhered to only the first 4,000 characters will print. However, the remaining characters will be retained in the electronic version of the document.

8. Principal Place of Peformance: When the Federal Program Officer selects the “Update Program Office Added Information” option from the dropdown menu on the Application launch page he/she has the opportunity to add or update auxiliary application information that is not from the SF-424. Until the issue associated with entering the Principal Place of Performance (PPoP) has been resolved, do not enter (PPoP) information when performing the Update Program Office Information action. The PPoP issue will be resolved in the next Grants Online release.
