Current and pending support information must be separately provided through use of an NSF-approved format, for each individual designated as senior personnel on the proposal. Current and 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.
Current and pending support information must be provided for this project, for ongoing projects, and for any proposals currently under consideration from whatever source, irrespective of whether such support is provided through the proposing organization or is provided directly to the individual.
The total award amount for the entire award period covered (including indirect costs) must be provided, as well as the number of person-months (or partial person-months) per year to be devoted to the project by the individual.
Concurrent submission of a proposal to other organizations will not prejudice its review by NSF, if disclosed. If the project (or any part of the project) now being submitted has been funded previously by a source other than NSF, information must be provided regarding the last period of funding.
In FastLane, current and pending support for all senior personnel may no longer be grouped together and uploaded in a single PDF file associated with the PI. Each individual’s current and pending support must be uploaded as a single PDF file or inserted as text associated with that individual.
The RAPID database will generate your C&P for you to complete by filling in your time commitments in calendar, academic year, or summer months. Please note that this report only includes information available from RAPID. Personnel are responsible for entering effort for each project, as well as current and pending support from gifts, internal grants, and other sources of support that are not included in RAPID.
NSF has released a much anticipated resource regarding pre-award and post-award disclosure information in the biographical sketch and current and pending support proposal sections. This table (https://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/disclosures_table.jsp (link is external)) identifies where these disclosures must be provided in proposals as well as in project reports. Proposers and awardees may begin using this resource immediately to assist with completing the relevant proposal and project report sections.
