Dear Colleagues,

NSF will be hosting a webcast on November 19, 2001 at 11am (PST).  The webcast is on the new version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), (NSF 13-1) that was issued on October 2, 2012.  It will be effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 14, 2013.

The PAPPG is comprised of documents relating to the Foundation's proposal and award process and consists of the:
(a) Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) for guidance on the preparation and submission of proposals to NSF; and
(b) Award & Administration Guide (AAG) to guide, manage, and monitor the award and administration of grants and cooperative agreements made by the Foundation.

Significant changes include:

*       Revisions to the NSF Merit Review Criteria which implement the National Science Board's (NSB) recommendations.  Changes will affect the project summary and project description sections of proposals.  Annual and final reports also will be affected;

*       Revision of the Biographical Sketch(es) instructions to rename the "Publications" section to "Products" and amend terminology and instructions accordingly;

*       Clarification on indirect costs specifying that, except as noted in the PAPPG or a program solicitation, organizations must use the applicable negotiated indirect cost rate;

*       Modification of Facilities, Equipment and Other Resources section of proposals to assist proposers in complying with the NSF cost sharing policy;

*       Additional proposal certifications must be submitted by the Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR) covering organizational support of the proposed research, tax obligations/liability and felony convictions; and

*       Numerous other clarifications also have been made throughout the document.

Research and Economic Development (RED) registered for the webcast and will be broadcasting it in Winston Chung Hall (Room 443).  We will also be hosting a Q and A session immediately following the webcast.  Please feel free to bring your lunch and RED will provide the beverages and dessert.
