This procedure utilizes VCU’s FileDrop service and eliminates the need for OSP’s FTP Secure Shell. This procedure applies mainly to the submission of non-VCUeRA electronic proposals (i.e., Adobe forms if Grants.gov proposals). The OSP FTP Secure Shell site will no longer be used.
An advantage of using FileDrop is that the OSP Intake Team will automatically be notified when files are available for download and processing.
Information on this procedure is available on the web at http://www.research.vcu.edu/osp/OSPandFileDrop.pdf
