All no-cost extension requests should be submitted at least 60 days prior to the current ending date of the project. Send the request by email, in the format outlined, below to:
Charles Sidman, Deputy Director
Florida Sea Grant College Program
University of Florida
PO Box 110400, Bldg. 803
Gainesville, Fl 32611-0400
- Reference the project by project number, NOAA grant number, and project title. For example:
Re: Project R/LR-X-43, NA76RG-0120, Florida Marine Science Project
- The body of the request for the extension should contain two parts:
a. The first paragraph should identify what you are requesting. For example: I would like to request a no-cost extension for the above referenced project from October 31, 2000 until December 31, 2000.
b. The second paragraph must identify the PROGRAMMATIC reasons for the extension request. (The fact that there is unspent revenue is not a programmatic reason for a no-cost extension.) For example: This project is a collaborative project with the Florida Marine Research Corporation. Our role in the project is to perform the analytical analysis with data collected using FMRC vessels. The data collection process is three months behind due to adverse weather conditions which made it unsafe to collect data. It is anticipated that all data can now be collected and the analysis can be completed with a three month extension.
3. Closing remarks and signature of Principal Investigator.
4. The final section should provide two signature blocks for use by the Director. For example:
