NSF has released a revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 20-1). The new PAPPG will be effective for proposals submitted or due, and awards made, on or after June 1, 2020. 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; and
  • Clarifications to current and pending support coverage as well as other changes throughout the document.

The UCSF Research Development Office hosted a Get to Know PCORI event on October 2, 2017. Dr. Joe Selby, Executive Director of PCORI, gave an overview of the institute, and five PCORI-funded UCSF investigators discussed elements of preparing a successful PCORI proposal (panel discussion not recorded). A recording of Dr. Selby's presentation is below. The slide deck is available here.
