CISE - Resumption of Operations at NSF

Subject: Resumption of Operations at NSF - Update from CISE
Date:
October 23, 2013 8:37:37 AM EDT

Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to resume normal operations, and look forward to working with the community in advancing our research and education mission. NSF is currently operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) that will fund the federal government through January 15, 2014.

In our efforts to resume our normal operations and to meet stringent deadlines on several programs, we are working to establish priorities and create guidance for all activities. It is our priority to focus on re-establishing core functions, such as receiving, reviewing and awarding/declining proposals, as well as oversight and management of existing awards.

Important information regarding the resumption of operations at NSF is posted on the NSF website at: http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/postshutdown.jsp.

This site currently includes an important notice issued by Acting NSF Director Cora B. Marrett, a FastLane Advisory, FAQs on revised proposal due dates, and the revised proposal due date listing.

A few important items to note:

  • NSF systems, including FastLane, are up and operational.
  • NSF has revised proposal due dates for funding opportunities with dates between October 1 - 25, 2013. For the complete listing of revised proposal due dates, please visit NSF's Resumption of Operations website. Changes to CISE program due dates include:
    • The Smart and Connected Health Exploratory (EXP) proposals for this year are now due November 6, 2013.
    • Research Experience for Teachers (RET) in Engineering and Computer Science are due on November 6, 2013.
    • Proposals for Networking Technology and Systems (NeTS: JUNO) Japan-US Network Opportunity: R&D for "Beyond Trillions of Objects" are due November 6, 2013.
    • The Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace MEDIUM project proposals are now due November 1 - 12, 2013.
    • The CISE Core Programs MEDIUM project proposals are due November 1 - 12, 2013 for each division (Computing and Communication Foundations, CCF; Computer and Network Systems, CNS; and Information and Intelligent Systems, IIS).
  • Project reports that became overdue during the shutdown should be submitted via Research.gov as soon as possible.
  • All panels that were canceled due to the shutdown will be rescheduled to a later date by the cognizant Program Officer.
  • Continuing Grant Increments (CGIs) that could not be processed during the shutdown are being issued by NSF as early as practicable.

NSF will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available. Please direct questions regarding specific funding opportunities to the cognizant NSF Program Officer(s) identified in the funding opportunity. General shutdown questions should be directed to policy@nsf.gov.

Thank you for your support as we recover from the funding lapse. We are fully committed to restoring normal operations as quickly as possible.

Sincerely,
Farnam
