Good afternoon,

As a reminder, departments do not need to wait for DSP to click on the 'Hide/Show Errors' button in the header of the SF424. One can click 'Hide/Show Errors' as many times as needed while working on the proposal.

Additionally, departments do not need to wait on DSP to click on the  'Validate Submission' button or 'Submission Pre-Check' button.

The only thing to remember is after validating the submission, you will need to click on the 'Reopen for Edit' button to make any changes. One can click 'Validate Submission' as many times as needed.

Below are two screenshots showing the dashboard before clicking 'Validate Submission' and after clicking 'Validate Submission'.

The sooner these buttons are clicked, the more time one will have to correct any errors that may occur prior to submission.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
