Dear Colleagues,


Beginning in April 2010, FastLane will check for the mentoring requirement
of the America COMPETES Act (ACA).  Each proposal that requests funding to
support postdoctoral researchers must include a mentoring plan as
supplementary document.  Just like other proposal documents, on the same
page, FastLane will provide a link to upload the Mentoring Plan.  If the
Postdoc line in the budget is greater than zero and the mentoring plan is
not included, FastLane will not allow the proposal to be submitted.
Programs Officers are including the mentoring requirement in their
solicitations where appropriate.  Also see NSF's Grant Proposal Guide GPG
Chapter II.C.2.j for the types of information appropriate for submission in
this section, as required.


Best regards, 


Charles E. Greer, Jr.
