Revised due dates for NSF funding opportunities that fall between October 1-25 have been posted on the Resumption of Operations webpage on the NSF website at: http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/postshutdown.jsp. These revised dates apply whether the proposal is being submitted via the NSF FastLane System or Grants.gov. Due to compressed proposal deadlines resulting from the shutdown, proposers are advised that they may experience a delay when contacting IT Help Central with technical support questions. Frequently asked questions regarding these date changes also are available on the Resumption of Operations page.
We strongly request that this information be disseminated widely to your membership. Questions regarding the specific funding opportunity should be directed to the cognizant NSF program officer(s) identified in the funding opportunity. General shutdown questions should be directed to policy@...<policy@...>.
