Dear Colleagues:

NSF has issued its new “Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide” (“the Guide”). The Guide contains major revisions that implement the Uniform Guidance (2CFR200). It is effective December 26, 2014 as mandated by the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”)

The full Guide can be found at: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/policydocs/pappguide/nsf15001/nsf15_1.pdf and on the UCI Uniform Guidance webpage under “Agency-Specific Guidance”: http://www.research.uci.edu/uniform-guidance/guidance/agency-guidance.html

The significant changes to the Guide can be found at: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/policydocs/pappguide/nsf15001/sigchanges.jsp. They are also attached to this e-mail.

Please read the Guide very carefully as it contains important changes that will impact proposal submissions to NSF and the administration of NSF awards, beginning December 26, 2014.

Please forward this to faculty, researchers and others that may be interested in this information.

If you should have any questions, please contact your Contract and Grant Officer in Sponsored Projects.

Nancy
