Target Dates vs. Deadlines

In the last newsletter, we announced that the Division was considering moving from target dates to deadlines for our biannual panels. We thank those of you who shared your perspective on the issue. At this time, the Division Director has decided to continue the use of target dates. However, please keep in mind that target dates are intended to provide investigators with a day or two of flexibility. For the reasons described in the last newsletter, we will switch to hard deadlines if we receive too many significantly late proposals. If you cannot get your proposal to us within a few days of the target date, or have not discussed your circumstances with the relevant Program Director, we ask that you hold the proposal and submit for a subsequent panel.
