You are encouraged to consult your Grant & Contract Officer (GCO) at any time during proposal
development. Assistance provided at an early stage can help avoid problems that might result in a sponsor's
rejection of a proposal or resolve issues that could delay or prevent acceptance of an award. It is particularly
important to notify your GCO as early as possible when responding to detailed proposal solicitations.
