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.
