Process, Documents and Resources
|Step 1: The proposal||Create your proposal. The Program Rules and guidelines for creating a new CEP or updating an existing one will help you understand what you need to do, and we're here to support you if you have questions.
|Step 2: Submit||Make sure all the required materials are submitted together in one package, including the Proponent Information document and the Proposal Template. Samples are available in Program Resources and Documents below.|
|Step 3: Initial Review||Within 15 business days of receiving the proposal, we will check to see if the form and supporting documents are all complete, and that the proposal meets all the eligibility requirements.
|Step 4: Time stamp||After a proposal passes the initial review, we'll tell you it has been accepted and that it has been given a Validated Time Stamp. The proposal will then go to the evaluation step.|
|Step 5: Evaluation||All proposals with a Validated Time Stamp are evaluated by a review committee. The full requirements for acceptance can be found in the Program Rules.|
|Step 6: Award||If the evaluation is successful and the proposal is accepted, you will be notified and offered a Funding Agreement with the IESO (see a sample Funding Agreement).|
