Dear Colleagues:

We have published a revision to the NSF Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) that is effective for proposals submitted on or after January 1, 2002. This revision implements:

  • revised proposal preparation guidelines relating to the Project Summary and Project Description. These changes continue NSF's efforts to remind proposers that both NSF merit review criteria must be addressed in the preparation and review of proposals submitted to NSF;

  • updated guidelines for submission of Single Copy Documents; and

  • new capabilities within FastLane for submission of requests for PI transfers, PI changes, and Subaward approvals.

Other sections have been revised, as appropriate, to further implement changes in policy and procedure brought about by the electronic signature process. A summary of significant changes is included on pages iii and iv of this document. The GPG is available on the NSF website. Organizations or individuals unable to access the GPG electronically may order paper copies (maximum of 5 per request) by either of the following means:

  • phoning the NSF Publications Clearinghouse at (301) 947-2722; or

  • sending a request to pubs@nsf.gov or the NSF Publications Clearinghouse, P.O. Box 218, Jessup, MD 20794-0218.

Please address any questions or comments regarding the GPG to the Policy Office, Division of Contracts, Policy & Oversight at (703) 292-8243 or by e-mail to policy@nsf.gov.

Thomas N. Cooley
Chief Financial Officer &
Director, Office of Budget, Finance & Award Management
