NSF Data Management Plan Requirements

Beginning January 18, 2011, proposals submitted to NSF must include a supplementary document of no more than two pages labeled "Data Management Plan" (DMP) .  This supplementary document should describe how the proposal will conform to NSF policy on the dissemination and sharing of research results.  Proposals that do not include a DMP will not be able to be submitted.  For more information about this new requirement, please see the Grant Proposal Guide, Chapter II.C.2.j and the Data Management and Sharing Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs).

Please note: the Engineering Directorate (ENG) has additional guidance for proposals submitted to ENG programs,  http://nsf.gov/eng/general/ENG_DMP_Policy.pdf. Questions and/or suggestions about this new requirement may be addressed to Dr. Maria K. Burka at mburka@nsf.gov
