Transmittal Letter

Proposal Cover Page

TWO proposal cover pages are required as part of the proposal.

The first is a hard copy (see the CAN for instructions on how to acquire the proposal hardcopy from the online system) which must be signed by the Principal Investigator and an official by title of the investigator’s organization who is authorized to commit the organization. This authorizing signature also certifies that the proposing institution has read and is in compliance with the required certifications printed in full, therefore, these certifications do not need to be submitted separately. This page will not be counted against the page limit of the proposal.

The second proposal cover page must be submitted electronically to the SYS-EYFUS Web site located at If the respondent has submitted an electronic Notice of Intent (Appendix E) to SYS-EYFUS, the same user UserID and password can be used to complete the electronic proposal cover page. If the respondent obtained a User ID and password in the process of submitting a proposal for a previous research opportunity announcement, the same user UserID and password can be used to complete the electronic proposal cover page in response to this research opportunity announcement. Be sure to click on “Edit Personal Information” if any of your correspondence information in SYS-EYFUS is not current.

If you do not have a SYS-EYFUS UserID or password, you may obtain one electronically by going to and performing the following steps:

  • Click the hyperlink for new user, which will take you to the Personal Information Search Page.

  • Enter your first and last name. SYS-EYFUS will search for your record information in the SYS-EYFUS database.

  • Confirm your personal information by choosing the record displayed.

  • Select continue, and a User ID and password will be e-mailed to you.

  • Once you receive your User ID and Password, login to the SYS-EYFUS Web site and follow the instructions for New Proposal Cover Page.

Respondents without access to the Web or who experience difficulty in using this site may contact the Help Desk at (or call 202.479.9376) for assistance. After you have submitted your notice of intent or proposal cover page electronically, if you are unsure if it has been successfully submitted, do not re-submit. Please call the Help Desk. They will be able to promptly tell you if your submission has been received. Please note that submission of the electronic cover page does not satisfy the deadline for proposal submission.
