Dear UCI Principal Investigators and Contract and Grant Administrators:

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is happy to announce that project reporting has successfully transitioned to Research.gov. This means that you will now log in to Research.gov to prepare and submit your final, annual, and interim project reports. You will also continue to use Research.gov to submit your Project Outcomes Reports. Report submissions will no longer be available through Fastlane.

UCI was one of 19 research organizations that volunteered to pilot this service starting in October 2012. Because of the feedback that you provided, we were able to help NSF improve the service before its final rollout.

Research.gov is NSF’s grants management system that provides easy access to research-related information and grants management services in one location; and it is the modernization of FastLane, providing the next generation of grants management capabilities for the research community.

Where Can I Find Out More?
For more information about the transition of annual, final, and interim project reporting to Research.gov, please visit the Project Report Informational Page or see our Online Help.

For technical assistance, contact the Research.gov Help Desk, 7 AM – 9 PM Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except for federal holidays):

  • Email the Help Desk at: rgov@nsf.gov

Please contact your Contract & Grant Officer in Sponsored Projects Administration if you have any questions.
