What do I do if I accidently submitted a pre-proposal with errors or I forgot to include a portion of the pre-proposal when I submitted?
Once submitted, the pre-proposals cannot be viewed or edited by the principal investigator. The original submission would need to be deleted by NDC staff and a new pre-proposal submitted to NDC by the principal investigator. Accordingly, the principal investigator should contact NDC (either or immediately if a submitted pre-proposal requires editing/revising (e.g., due to omissions).
