ONR has begun to issue new grant award numbers for Awards that will not be fully expired or are close to expiring. In the past an Amendment would have been issued adding funding and extending the award.
This a result of the Grant/Contract writing system that ONR is utilizing. ONR is sun-setting the old system and will be going fulltime with the new one. ONR’s new financial system requires issuance of new funds within the new system. Awards that will not be fully expired or are close to expiring in the current system will need to be migrated over to the new system. The only way this can be accomplished is via a new award number.
