Please see the important message from NSF below regarding the resumption of operations at the National Science Foundation. We recommend that you visit the NSF Resumption Web Page often to ensure you have the most recent information regarding the impact of the shut-down and resumption on past, current and future transactions submitted to NSF. Important updates include the following:
·Proposers, awardees and reviewers who have questions are encouraged to await communications from NSF, at least initially, as they resume operations.
·The implementation date for the revised NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 19-1), which was scheduled to become effective on January 28, 2019, has been delayed. NSF will post a new implementation date on the NSF website as soon as practicable. In the interim, the current version of the PAPPG (NSF 18-1) applies.
·Grants or cooperative agreements impacted by the lapse will be awarded as early as practicable.
·NSF electronic systems were available during the shut-down for use by the awardee community to submit no-cost extension, award transfer, supplemental funding request and other post award notifications and requests via NSF electronic systems. All requests submitted during the lapse will be processed by NSF as early as practicable.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please visit the NSF Resumption Web Page and / or contact your assigned Officer. Remember, your assigned officer can be looked up at https://research.uci.edu/sponsored-projects/about/staff-dept-assignment.html.
