NSF Scientific Integrity Policy

It is the policy of NSF to maintain a culture of scientific integrity in accordance with President Obama’s March 9, 2009 Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies on Scientific Integrity and the implementation guidance in the Office of Science and Technology Policy’s (OSTP) December 17, 2010 Memorandum. Both memoranda are available on the OSTP website. NSF’s policy applies to civil service employees; visiting scientists, engineers, and educators; those working at NSF under the Intergovernmental Personnel Act; and political appointees.
