NSF Proposes 2015-2016 PAPPG

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has issued a draft Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) for 2015-2016 that keeps in place a requirement for both the final project and project outcomes reports to be submitted within 90 days "following expiration of the grant" but continues to permit financial drawdowns within 120 days. NSF posted news of the PAPPG in the May 20 Federal Register, which also includes instructions for submitting comments, due by July 20. Award recipients have asked federal agencies to adhere to a 120-day closeout process that would apply to all administrative activities, necessitating a deviation of current requirements under the Uniform Guidance issued by the Office of Management and Budget. So far, NIH may be the only agency to allow 120 days for all closeout requirements to be met (RRC 2/15, p. 8).
