A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), (NSF 14-1) has been issued. The new PAPPG will be effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after February 24, 2014. Since the upcoming Cognitive Neuroscience target date is February 25, 2014, all proposals submitted to this competition must conform to the new PAPPG (NSF 14-1).
Significant changes include:
- Addition to the certification regarding Conflict of Interest concerning the appropriate disclosure process;
- Reiteration that indirect costs are not allowed on participant support costs;
- Small-scale pilot of a new environmental impacts process with a few programs, prior to NSF-wide implementation;
- Updated process for program income reporting; and
- Numerous clarifications throughout the document.
A by-chapter summary of the changes is provided at the beginning of both the Grant Proposal Guide and the Award & Administration Guide to assist with identifying the changes.
