  • Once you received your corrections and you are ready to resubmit revisions, DO NOT DELETE any existing uploaded files. Label all new uploads as the originals so that a revision is reflected in the revision column instead of an additional document.
  • Deleting documents will require re-submission of your plan for review.
  • When submitting revised plans, upload the entire set that was requested with changes and not just the individual pages.
