Questions & Answers:
Q: Regarding RFA#1405, under section 5 (Filing requirements) the first requirement is a certificate of good standing issued within 60 days. We receive a biennial certificate from the District that has been acceptable for past grants. Can we still use this document?
A: DDOE will accept from applicants all current Certificates of Good Standing.
Q: A potential applicant proposed changes to the Applicant’s Promises, Certifications and Assurances required as part of the Grant Application (“PCA”).
A: Regarding the proposed changes to the application’s “Promises, Certifications and Assurances” (PCA), DDOE has carefully considered the proposal. It cannot agree to the changes as a matter of course. DDOE is willing to discuss resolving ambiguities with a successful applicant if notification of the need for resolution occurs (1) after notification that the applicant has won an award, and (2) before the award is accepted.
