Forms are an integral part of sponsored programs.  Some of these forms are used during and prior to a grant application, while others are used during the execution of a sponsored program to report back to the funding agency.  
 
 
You will need Adobe Acrobat to access many of the available forms, though some sites have versions available in MS Word.  There are several other formats being used, primarily by government sites.  Some of these document types require specialized readers, (e.g., Accessible FormNet, Formflow) and store only a data file on your local hard drive.  It is recommended that you use Adobe Acrobat, or MS Word forms when possible so that the files can be safely archived and you are not dependant upon the stability of an external web-site.
 

 
It is good practice to save both paper and digital copies of all forms you complete.
