29General InformationGrantees are reminded that failure to include all required documents and information will result in the progress report being considered incomplete or non- responsive.Incomplete or non-responsive progress reports will be returned to the grantee through a “request change” notification via EHB to provide missing documentation or clarify a portion of the submitted report.
30General InformationFailure to submit the BPR by the established deadline or submission of an incomplete or non-responsive progress report may result in a delay in Notice of Award issuance or a lapse in funding.Therefore, it is recommended that grantees carefully review their BPR to ensure it is both complete and responsive prior to submission.
