If you’d like to submit a text file (such as a Word document or Excel file), click Browse My computer. This will allow you to choose and attach your file.

You also have the ability to add any extra comments if you’d like – this isn’t mandatory:


When you’re finished submitting, click Submit. You can also click Save Draft to save your progress and come back to it later.
