Preparing a Proposal in EGMS
Because the EGMS databases interact with each other, some kinds of data must be entered into one database before they can be used in another. For this reason:
It is recommended that you start by entering data in the Expertise and Other Support Databases. Once your professional information is added to these databases, use the Proposal Preparation Database to complete the sponsor forms for a proposal. When you arrive at the biosketch section, you choose the data you need from the Expertise and Other Support Databases to fill the pages.
It is required that you complete and audit the EGMS proposal before you begin your Proposal Routing Form (PRF). From within the EGMS proposal, you tell EGMS to send proposal data (investigator names and budget totals, for example) to the EGMS Forms Database to partially complete the PRF.
