Important Notice for SBE Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant (SBE DDRIG) proposals due in August, September and October of 2011

It has come to our attention that there may be confusion regarding a change to the treatment of indirect costs that was incorporated into the SBE Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (SBE DDRIG) program solicitation (NSF 11-547) issued May, 2011. For the Fall 2011 submission dates only, we are reverting to the requirements specified in the previous DDRIG solicitation of not allowing the inclusion of indirect costs in proposal budgets. Please be advised that this reversal of policy applies only to SBE DDRIG proposals being submitted to the August, September and October 2011 deadlines.

NSF's long-standing policy regarding the reimbursement of administrative costs is full reimbursement of indirect costs, based on the awardee's current Federally negotiated indirect cost rate agreement. NSF plans to revise and reissue the SBE DDRIG solicitation immediately following the October 15, 2011 deadline to ensure consistency with Foundation and Federal-wide policies, and DDRIG proposals submitted to the January 2012 deadlines and beyond will be subject to the awardee's current Federally negotiated indirect cost rate.

Please refer to the applicable SBE Program Webpage or contact your cognizant NSF Program Officer for additional information regarding this important change.
