NSF has announced that a revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), (NSF 18-1) has been issued.
A webinar to brief the community on the new PAPPG will be held on December 8 at 2 PM EST. Registration is now available at: https://nsfgrantsconferences.com/pappg-update-webinar/
The new PAPPG will be effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 29, 2018. Significant changes include:
You are encouraged to review the by-chapter summary of changes provided in the Introduction section of the PAPPG.
While this version of the PAPPG becomes effective on January 29, 2018, in the interim, the guidelines contained in the current PAPPG (NSF 17-1) continue to apply. We will ensure that the current version of the PAPPG remains on the NSF website, with a notation to proposers that specifies when the new PAPPG (including a link to the new Guide) will become effective.
If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact the Policy Office at (703) 292-8243 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
