4. Submit Response

Submit your Mass Clarification response to the Program Office. 

  • You can select Cancel and then Save if you need to make changes. 
  • When you have no more information to provide, Submit your Response before the clarification deadline. 
  • You cannot edit your reply after you submit it. 

Your clarification status will be Responded to the Program Office. You will see a Read-Only View of the clarification communications. You can view the clarification request, and your response, and download your attached files after submitting your clarification response. You cannot recall your response or make any changes to it once you submit it.

In addition, clarification documents will not appear in your submission documents because the new requirement should not be added to the original submission. It is not an issue to be unable to see them in your Document Library as the program office team has access to the document(s) in a separate area for tracking.
