I hope I am missing something. When NIH switched to electronic submission there was massive outcry because the system they were using was so bloody stupid. "Why not just go with nice and easy Adobe pdf forms?", asked anyone and everyone who had to use the new PureEdge nonsense.
So NIH responded and promised a new Adobe based version. Coolio, we thought.
Well, the notice of the new forms is out. Eagerly I navigated to a
Funding Opportunity Announcement RFA.
They have got to be kidding me!!!!!!!!!!
It is the EXACT same crap with a new software platform. Newsflash NIH!!!! The problem is with the series of disconnected subformZs and whatnotYs and who the hell knows how to import an actual research plan and for FSM's noodly sake it looks like we STILL can't SaveAs:Edit to start our new grants but must build each from scratch..
They just don't get it, do they?
[Please, please, please someone tell me I am overlooking something here and there really IS a change of significance? Please?]
