NSF Post-Award Disclosure of Current Support and In-Kind Contribution Information

Federal funding agencies have become increasingly concerned about the accurate reporting of current and pending support in proposals. The National Science Foundation has updated the Grant General Conditions (GC-1) dated October 5, 2020 to provide guidance on how a priincipal investigator or co-PI of an active NSF grant can disclose current support or in-kind contribution information that was not submitted at the proposal stage.

Effective October 5, 2020, the missing information must be submitted by the Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR) within 30 calendar days of the identification of the undisclosed current support or in-kind contribution through use of the “Other Request” category in the Notification and Request Module in Research.gov.

See: Section 47 of the NSF Grant General Conditions for more information on these requirements.
