* Detailed instructions for using the OSP Proposal and Award Acceptance Workflow (Proposal Workflow) are found on the Frevvo User Guide webpage.
** Because the Proposal Workflow is electronically signed by all of the relevant parties, a form designated with ** above will not need to be manually routed and signed.  Instead, the completed form (minus the signatures) will be uploaded into the Proposal Workflow.  When a party signs in the Proposal Workflow, she/he indicates her/his acceptance of (1) the main text of the Proposal Workflow and (2) all attachments uploaded into the Proposal Workflow.
*** For more information about these agreement templates, please email
**** The functional areas are (1) Proposal Preparation, (2) Award Acceptance, (3) Award Management, (4) Award Closeout, (5) Subawards, (6) Recharge Centers, and (7) Reporting.
