NSF PAPPG Webinar & Timeline

The NSF has recently announced the updates to the PAPPG. NSF will be holding a NSF Proposal & Awards Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) Update Webinar on Thursday, February 6, 2020 from 2:00-3:00PM ET (12:00-1:00PM AZ Time). Note that the PAPPG 20-1 will apply to all proposals submitted or due, or awards made, on or after June 1, 2020.

With this PAPPG update, requirements for the Current and Pending Support and the Biosketches will change. NSF will be releasing a fillable PDF document for C&Ps in February 2020 and SciENcv will release an NSF-compliant C&P form in March 2020. SciENcv already has an NSF-compliant Biosketch format for use. NSF will be releasing a fillable PDF document for Biosketches in March 2020. While these forms are currently optional to use, NSF-compliant Biosketches and NSF-compliant C&Ps will be required for all proposals submitted or due on or after June 1, 2020.
