NSF GPG Changes and New Solicitation
On March 18, 2013, NSF will transfer its current project reporting service from FastLane to Research.gov. As part of the transition of project reports to Research.gov, there will be a mandatory FastLane freeze. This means NSF awardees must stop submitting project reports in FastLane starting on February 1, 2013. To assist the community with this transition, the overdue date will be extended for all project reports that are currently scheduled to become overdue between January 31 and April 30, 2013.
For proposals being submitted to the National Science Foundation due on or after January 14, 2013, NSF has provided FAQ's on Fastlane to address changes to the Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG).
