NSF Issues New Guidelines

The National Science Foundation has issued a new version of the NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG), (NSF 14-1) effective for proposals due on or after February 24, 2014. The PAPPG consists of (a) the Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) for guidance on the preparation and submission of proposals to NSF and (b) the Award and Administration Guide (AAG) to guide, manage, and monitor the award and administration of grants and cooperative agreements made by NSF.

A summary of the significant changes by chapter to the GPG and to the AAG is available at the beginning of each document to assist with identifying the changes.
