REPORTING RESEARCH SUPPORT
In an effort to allow for greater transparency of Investigators’ research support, capacity, and potential overlap with other projects, federal funding agencies have reinforced or updated their policies and processes regarding how to report research support in the Other Support (NIH) and Current & Pending Support (NSF) documents. Based on this information, OG&C has developed agency specific guidance documents, for NSF and NIH, for faculty who have active awards and/or are submitting sponsored research proposals.
This guidance is not intended to replace or supersede policies and guidance from the respective funding agencies. Investigators should direct their questions to their designated Deployed Research Administrator (DRA).
Current Pending Support Guidance_NSF
Other Support Guidance _NIH
The National Science Foundation has released the 2020 PAPPG (Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide), and is effective for all proposals submitted or due as of June 1, 2020. As expected, there are updated instructions pertaining to the Biosketch and Current/Pending support sections.
Effective June 1, 2020, both Biosketches and Current/Pending must be in one of two NSF-approved formats:
- SciENcv – NIH’s Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae, available now! YouTube video tutorial available here (3 minutes and 33 seconds).
- NSF fillable PDF
- Biosketch – available in March 2020
- Current/Pending – expected to be available in February 2020
More information about the Biosketch is available here, and more information about the Current/Pending is available here.
- Regarding Current/Pending – support includes all resources made available to an individual in support of and/or related to all of his/her research efforts, regardless of whether or not they have monetary value. Current and pending support also includes in-kind contributions (such as office/laboratory space, equipment, supplies, employees, students). In-kind contributions not intended for use on the project/proposal being proposed also must be reported.
- If you plan to submit a proposal in response to an opportunity with a rolling deadline prior to June 1, but then postpone, be sure the proposal meets the requirements of the new PAPPG.
- OG&C will be partnering with the Falvey Library to offer a workshop on SciENcv and ORCID. Stay tuned for more details.
