From The Vault: Sorting Out Your COEUS Proposal Designations

[Occasionally, we like to revisit posts from days gone by that either (1) are always relevant, or (2) are the subject of recent questions received by our office.  In today’s From The Vault, we look at our COEUS Proposal Flowchart.]

No matter how much time we spend working within COEUS, there are always those instances where we’re unsure how a particular action should be designated.  Is it a Supplement or a Continuation?  Administrative Action?

To assist everyone (ourselves most certainly included), we have revised our COEUS Proposal Flowchart, which acts as a Choose Your Own Adventure to help users figure out what to call a particular PD.  Of course, there will always be those records that cannot be as easily identified, but we hope that this will alleviate much of the confusion.


As always, let us know your comments, and if you have any suggestions or other helpful tips to include!
