Beginning March 18, 2013, the NSF will enhance the FastLane system to begin automated compliance checking of all required sections of proposals. This will bring NSF systems in line with long-standing proposal preparation requirements as outlined in the NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) ( Chapter II.C.2 of the Grant Proposal Guide (GPG)).

The GPG-required sections of a proposal include: Project Summary * Budget Justification Project Description Current and Pending Support References Cited Facilities, Equipment and Other Resources Biographical Sketch(es) Data Management Plan * Budget Postdoctoral Mentoring Plan (if applicable)* * These proposal sections are already being auto-compliance checked by FastLane.

Proposal submission instructions for conferences, symposia or workshops; international travel grants; or program solicitations may deviate from the GPG instructions. If the submission instructions do not require one of the above sections to be provided, proposers will need to insert text or upload a document in that section of the proposal that states, “Not Applicable.” Doing so will enable FastLane to accept the proposal.

Additionally, proposers providing Biographical Sketches and/or Current and Pending Support information for Principal Investigators (PIs), co-PI(s) or Senior Personnel in a single PDF file associated with the PI, must insert text or upload a document in that section of the proposal that states, “Not Applicable,” for any co-PI or Senior Personnel so that FastLane will accept the proposal.

PIs will receive a warning message if any of the GPG-required sections is missing, however, the PI will still be able to submit the proposal to the organization’s Sponsored Project Office (SPO). If the SPO attempts to submit proposal that is missing any of the GPG required sections, they will receive an error message identifying the missing section(s), and FastLane will prevent submission to NSF. After obtaining all required sections, the SPO may submit the proposal to NSF in accordance with the established deadline date policy.

Proposals submitted through Grants.gov must include all GPG required sections or include a document stating that the section is “Not Applicable.

Additional information will be posted on the NSF website at: http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/autocompliance.jsp Please contact policy@nsf.gov for any further questions.

NSF issued the following notice on the impact of the FY 2013 Sequestration Order on NSF awards.

As you may know, since passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, the President has been working with Congress to reach agreement on a balanced deficit reduction plan. If an agreement is not reached by the end of this month, the President will be required to issue an order on March 1, 2013 that will implement across-the-board spending cuts known as sequestration. As a result of this expected sequestration order, the Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 appropriations of the National Science Foundation (NSF) will be reduced by 5 percent.

We intend to make the necessary FY 2013 reductions with as little disruption as possible to established commitments, and are using the following set of core principles to guide our sequestration planning activities: • Protect commitments to NSF's core mission and maintain existing awards; • Protect the NSF workforce; and • Protect STEM human capital development programs.

By adhering to these core principles and the government-wide guidance issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Memorandum 13-03, Planning for Uncertainty with Respect to Fiscal Year 2013 Budgetary Resources, we expect to be able to accommodate the sequestration reductions in ways that minimize, to the extent possible, the impact on our mission, both short- and long-term. Because the sequestration order takes effect at mid-year, its impact is somewhat greater than might otherwise be the case. At NSF, the major impact of sequestration will be seen in reductions to the number of new research grants and cooperative agreements awarded in FY 2013. We anticipate that the total number of new research grants will be reduced by approximately 1,000.

In keeping with the first core principle listed above, and to assure continuity and minimize disruption of scientific research, all continuing grant increments in FY 2013 will be awarded, as scheduled, and there will be no impact on existing NSF standard grants. The same intent applies to annual increments for cooperative agreements, though overall funding constraints may require reductions to certain major investments. These will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

It is also important to advise you that the Foundation is currently operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) that will expire on March 27, 2013. Once NSF has appropriations in place beyond March 27th, we will revise this notice as necessary.

In FY 2012, NSF received 48,623 proposals and provided 11,534 awards (24% funding rate).
