NSF Announces Revised Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG)

The new PAPPG (20-1) will be effective for proposals submitted or due, and awards made, on or after June 1, 2020. Until then the guidelines contained in the current PAPPG (NSF 19-1) continue to apply.

Significant changes include:

  • NSF will require use of an NSF-approved format in submission of the biographical sketch and current and pending support documents, once the PAPPG (NSF 20-1) becomes effective.
  • New requirement for proposing organizations to submit government-wide representations and certifications in the System for Award Management (SAM).
  • New requirement for providing e-mail documentation of Program Officer approval for the submission of RAPID and EAGER proposals.
  • Clarifications to current and pending support coverage as well as other changes throughout the document.
