A brief guide NSF's Technical Reporting Requirements has been updated to include the changes in the revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1). This NSF Technical Reporting Requirements Guide should be used by Principal Investigators as a resource to find out about the information that should be included in annual, final, and project outcome reports. As of March 18, 2013, all NSF reports must be submitted through Research.gov. PIs who have not had experience with the reporting modules in Research.gov may also find the Getting Started Guide useful.
A new Strategic Plan for the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS) has been released to guide the division's pursuits and activities. The goals of the division align with and flow from the new NSF Strategic Plan and the foundation's goals to Transform the Frontier, Innovate for Society, and Perform as a Model Organization.
