To complete a submission you must:

  • first register a new User Account; and then
  • sign in to your User Account.

Step 1: There are two ways you can Create a New Proposal

  • Option 1
    • Open up the particular solicitation record and click on the “Create New Proposal” button at the top or bottom of the record. This will take you to the first page of the form. The Solicitation Number field will be pre-filled. 
  • Option 2
    • Open up your Hub Dashboard and click on the “Create New Proposal” button. This will take you to the first page of the form. You will need to select the relevant Solicitation Number from the drop down list before proceeding. At this point you may be asked to refresh your screen (popup) which you should agree to. 

Step 2: The first page of the form contains two sections (Instructions and Terms) which you should carefully read. The Terms on the page are specific to the solicitation record you have selected. To begin, you will need to select the tick box which says I have read and agree to the relevant Terms. 

Note: You can save your partially completed form, and move to the next section, at any stage by clicking on the “Next” button at the bottom of the screen. 

To go back a page you click on the “Previous” button. 

To return to your Hub Dashboard, you click on the word “Dashboard” in the link at the top of screen.

Step 3: You will need to complete the questions in Sections A through to E of the submission form. Mandatory fields are marked with a red asterisk *

Step 4: In Section E you can upload a single image file of the technology referred to in your proposal. For security reasons, the file can only be in .JPG, .PNG or .BMP format. 

Step 5: You will now be taken to a page where your answers are displayed against all of the questions on the submission form. You can perform a final edit of your answers on this screen. 

To submit your proposal, you will need to select the tickbox under Question F.1. which says “I have read and understood this section” and then click on the “Submit” button.

The system will check that all mandatory fields have been completed before the form is submitted. If there are any missing fields, you will receive an error message. You can click on the links in the error message to go to the question and enter your response. 

Step 6: Once your form is submitted, you will be taken to your Hub Dashboard where the proposal will be display the status of “Initial Proposal Assessment”. To print a copy of the submitted proposal, you can click on the link to display the record, and then use either the Print icon at the bottom of the screen, or your browser’s Print function. Change the printer setting in the preview to PDF and save the file.
