NSF has published a revised version of its Proposal & Award Policies &
Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 09-1,
<http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf091> that will be
effective for all proposals received on or after January 5, 2009.  


The significant changes to the PAPPG include: 

*	Entirely new guidance that addresses and implements the mentoring
requirement of the America COMPETES Act; 
*	A major revision of NSF's faculty salary reimbursement policy, to
limit compensation for senior personnel to no more than two months of their
regular salary in any one year from all NSF-funded grants; 
*	Debut of the Grants for Rapid Response Research (RAPID) and
Early-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) mechanisms, that
replace the SGER program; and 
*	Revision of how NSF defines co-PI for greater consistency with
guidance issued by Office of Science and Technology Policy. 


While this version of the PAPPG becomes effective on January 5, 2009, in the
interim, the guidelines contained in the current PAPPG (NSF 08-1) will
continue to apply.  NSF will maintain the current version of the PAPPG on
its website, with a notation to proposers that specifies when the new PAPPG
will become effective.  In addition, NSF plans to revise existing funding
opportunities with due dates between January 5th and March 31st to alert
proposers that significant changes have been made to NSF proposal
preparation guidelines.


If you have any questions regarding NSF's new PAPPG, please contact the
Contract and Grant Officer <http://or.ucr.edu/home/Staff.aspx?t=3>  assigned
to your unit.
