The Overall component provides overview information for the application. The Overall component describes the entire application and explains how each of the additional components fit together. It is a special component type with a single occurrence in every complex application. The PD/PI and multi-PD/PIs for the entire application are captured in the Overall component. It is the only component that includes full SF424 R&R cover data collection. It does not include a budget.
The Overall component must be added first before additional components can be added. Adding the Overall component also adds its corresponding forms (e.g., Cover Page, Checklist).
If additional components are available, they can be added using the Add New Component button in the Actions section. Refer to the help topic titled Other Components.
IMPORTANT: The figures provided in these topics serve as examples only. They may not reflect what you see in your own applications and may not always represent valid data.
