Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR § 200). NSF anticipates release of the PAPPG in the Fall of 2014. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.

SYNOPSIS

This solicitation seeks proposals focused on the ecosystem of the eastern continental shelf of the Bering Sea (see the Program  Description section for details) and designed to develop understanding of  the effects of a varying sea-ice cover on the shelf ecosystem, to project the potential changes in response to anticipated climate variations on decadal time scales, and to assess the vulnerability and sustainability of the local communities to such changes. Particular emphasis should be placed on development of proposals that clearly and significantly contribute to an ecosystem level understanding of the Eastern Bering Sea shelf.  This solicitation draws upon the community planning embodied in the Bering Ecosystem Study Science Plan (http://www.arcus.org/Bering/reports/downloads/BEST_Science_Plan.pdf), Sustaining the Bering Ecosystem: a Social Sciences Plan (http://www.arcus.org/Bering/reports/downloads/HBEST_Science_Plan.pdf), and the Implementation Plan for the Bering Ecosystem Study (BEST) (http://www.arcus.org/Bering/reports/downloads/BEST_Implementation_Plan.pdf); however, it should not be considered the full implementation of or confined only to activities described in any of these plans. 

NSF will coordinate this solicitation, and the resulting science, with the North Pacific Research Board’s (NPRB) Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (www.nprb.org/research/bsierp_intro.htm).  The synergies developed through this partnership will allow support for a comprehensive vertically-integrated investigation of the ecosystem of the eastern continental shelf of the Bering Sea.  Proposals funded by each organization will be expected to mesh smoothly to produce a seamless, coordinated research program.
