The National Science Foundation (NSF) is happy to announce that project reporting has successfully been 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.

NSF would like to thank the 19 research organizations who volunteered to pilot this service starting in October 2012. Because of their feedback, we were able to improve the service before the 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. Research.gov 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

• Call the Help Desk at 1-800-381-1532

The call for research professor nominations was sent to the colleges.

This honor is valued by the recipients who receive both recognition for their productivity and achievements. There are many faculty members who deserve this award for their contribution to scholarship and to the growing reputation of the University of New Orleans as one of the top 200 research universities in the United States of America.

The title, Early Research Professor, is recognition for persons who hold the rank of Assistant Professor at the time of their appointment, who have passed their third-year review and who have distinguished themselves in their creative and scholarly activities. The title, University Research Professor, is recognition for persons who have achieved the rank of Associate Professor or Professor and who have distinguished themselves in their creative and scholarly activities. The title, Chancellor’s Research Professor, is recognition for persons who have achieved the rank of Professor and who have distinguished themselves in their creative and scholarly work while at the University.

The nomination packet for all three awards should be sent via email to vpresearch@uno.edu. The vita of the nominee should be attached to the email. The list of external reviewers, if required, and any additional materials should be either attached to or included in the body of the email. The email should originate with the Department Chair and be routed through the Dean for their notification and recommendation.

Consultants’ reports, including funding recommendations, for all FY 2012-13 Board of Regents Support Fund competitive programs are now available on the Board’s Sponsored Programs website, http://web.laregents.org. The Board is expected to consider these recommendations, as well as on campus requests for matching funds to endow non-competitive professorships and first-generation undergraduate scholarships, at its meetings of April 24-25, 2013. Note that significant reductions in available BoRSF monies for new projects have resulted in cuts to the number of Priority I projects that can be funded.

Consult the funding memo, posted with the reports, for information on the Priority One projects that are likely to receive funding. In addition, please be reminded that no funding is guaranteed until the Board considers and approves consultants’ recommendations at its April meeting.

Office of Research summer research proposals were sent to Research Council for ranking. Awards will be announced before the end of April.

Stimulating Competitive Research (SCoRe) - The goal of the SCoRe award is to enhance the UNO faculty's ability to successfully compete for extramural sponsored research funding. The SCoRe award is intended as seed money for faculty to develop a new area of research activity.

Creative Endeavor Opportunity (CEO) - The goal is to provide support for faculty to launch programs of research, scholarship, exhibition or performance that will ultimately result in increased research and creative activity on campus.

In accordance with changes to the Public Health Services (PHS)’ Conflict of Interest (COI) Policy, UNO implemented a supplemental COI policy for individuals holding a PHS (which includes the National Institutes of Health) award, either direct or pass-thru award.  The policy was distributed last year and is attached for reference.  All individuals who meet the definition of an investigator must comply with the policy.  An investigator is defined as:  

 “any UNO individual (including faculty, staff, post docs, graduate assistants and students) who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of Sponsored Research or for the proposal of such Sponsored Research. For the purpose of this Policy, the term includes the following members of the Investigator’s immediate family: children, spouses of children, siblings, spouses of siblings, parents, spouse and spouse’s parents” (taken from the main COI policy which can be found on the COI website, link: http://www.uno.edu/compliance/conflictofinterest.aspx)

 

Someone who meets the definition of an investigator does not have to be listed as a Co-PI with the sponsor.

All investigators must complete the PHS Investigator COI Report.  If the individual is listed as a Co-PI on the routing form, the COI report is completed through the form.  All other investigators must complete and sign the paper report and either email, fax or send it to the Office of Research (attention Carol Mitton).  The report is attached and can be found on the COI website, link above.

In addition to the COI report, all investigators must complete the COI training; this training must be done before beginning work on the project and must be done every four years.  The training is done on-line through SharePoint (training link:  https://sharepoint.uno.edu/research/Conflict%20of%20Interest%20Training/Forms/AllItems.aspx). To begin the training, click Add Document on the COI training page.  Questions or problems with the training can be directed to Carol Mitton at 280-5546 or cmitton@uno.edu.  If students must take the training, their names must be sent to Carol Mitton to ensure they have access to the training site.

To enforce the report and training requirement, all payroll paperwork (101, Form 6) for individuals being paid from a PHS (such as NIH) direct or pass-thru award must include a statement in the comments section as to whether or not the individual meets the definition of an investigator. The paperwork will not be approved by Sponsored Programs Accounting without that statement.

At the time of a new PHS award, the Office of Research will send a separate email to the PI summarizing the policy, informing them whether they need to complete the training, and requesting a list of known individuals who meet the definition of an investigator. If necessary, these individuals will be notified of the COI requirements and asked to comply.  This is being done to minimize the potential of delay in processing their paperwork at a later date.  Attached is a procedure document that identifies the responsibilities of our office, Sponsored Programs Accounting and the PI.

Questions can be directed to Carol Mitton.

This email was sent to all employees.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) intends to release a new Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) in October 2013, with an anticipated effective date of January 2014. NSF formally announced our intention to revise the PAPPG in the Federal Register on May 30, 2013. The upcoming release contains revisions across a broad range of topics, such as clarifications on proposal preparation and submission; information on environmental compliance; and updates on reporting requirements and financial payments. A detailed summary of significant proposed revisions is available at the beginning of the draft document.

NSF invites the research and education community to access and review a draft version of the PAPPG. The proposed significant changes are highlighted in yellow throughout the document.

Comments may be submitted as indicated in the Federal Register notice. NSF is accepting comments until COB June 28, 2013.

Any questions should be addressed to the DIAS Policy Office.

University of New Orleans President Peter J. Fos announced that Kenneth W. Sewell has been named vice president for research and economic development. Sewell was vice president for research and economic development at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas.

Sewell will oversee all research and economic development activities at the University of New Orleans, including those sponsored by the UNO Research and Technology Park, located on the University's Lakefront campus.

"Dr. Sewell brings over five years of experience in administering research and economic development at a major university," said President Peter J. Fos. "His ability to engage faculty in the promotion of research and his industry connections will help serve the mission of the University of New Orleans. I am certain that, with his guidance and leadership, the research portfolio of the University of New Orleans will improve significantly."

As the chief research officer for UNT, Sewell was responsible for promoting research, scholarship and artistic creativity in support of the entire mission of the university. He worked with deans, chairs and faculty, as well as funding agencies and other institutions, to enhance UNT's research profile.

Prior to his post as vice president, Sewell served as associate vice president from 2008 to 2013, and brings additional experience from a variety of administrative positions throughout his career. He has served on numerous key university-level committees and boards since joining UNT, including membership on the University Review Committee, and chairing the Institutional Review Board. Sewell was director of the UNT doctoral program in clinical psychology from 1996 to 2008.

Sewell graduated summa cum laude from Kansas State University with a bachelor's degree in psychology. He received his master's and doctoral degrees in psychology from the University of Kansas. Following a clinical internship with the Department of Veterans Affairs, Sewell joined UNT's Department of Psychology faculty in 1991.
