Regrettably, the application package for the FY 2015 SPDG competition contains inconsistent language regarding electronic submissions.  On page A2, you will find the correct information:

"GRANTS.GOV APPLICATION SUBMISSION. Applications for grants under this competition must be submitted electronically using the Grants.gov Apply site (www.Grants.gov). Please read carefully the Grants.gov Submission Procedures and Tips for Applicants document that we have included on page B-34, which includes helpful tips about submitting electronically using the Grants.gov Apply site. We strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with Grants.gov and strongly recommend that you register and submit early. Also, applicants are required to upload their attachments in PDF format only."

Please note that page D6 contains incorrect information.
