WHY THIS INFORMATION IS BEING REQUESTED: The Federal Government has a continuing commitment to monitor the operation of its review and award processes to identify and address any inequities based on gender, race, ethnicity, or disability. To gather information needed for this important task, we ask that reviewers provide the requested demographic information about themselves. Submission of the requested information is voluntary and will not affect your eligibility to serve as an NSF reviewer. Nonetheless, we need your cooperation, for information not submitted will seriously undermine the statistical validity, and therefore the usefulness, of information we get from others.

Collection of this information is authorized by the NSF Act of 1950, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 1861, et seq. Demographic data allows us to gauge whether our programs and other opportunities in science and technology are fairly reaching and benefiting everyone regardless of demographic category, and to ensure that those in under-represented groups have the same knowledge of and access to programs, meetings, vacancies, and other research and educational opportunities as everyone else. The information will be held closely. It may be disclosed to government contractors, experts, volunteers and researchers as necessary to complete assigned work; to other government agencies needing the information in order to conduct joint merit reviews with NSF; to federal government agencies needing potential reviewers and specialists in particular fields, or to another federal science agency or an academic researcher to use this data for statistical purposes in scholarly studies or in federal program evaluations. The information will be added to the NSF Reviewer file, which is used to identify potential candidates to serve as peer reviewers or advisory committee members. See System of Records, NSF-51, "Reviewer/Proposal File and Associated Records," 69 Federal Register 26410 (May 12, 2004).
