Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1) - Automated Compliance Checks: FastLane will begin to run an additional 24 automated compliance checks on proposals to ensure they comply with (GPG).

Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) and the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) announce the release of Activity Log

The Activity Log is a new web-based system tracking proposal and award activities handled through OSP and Business-CONNECT, and it provides the following:

  • Transparency for the campus community in viewing the status of a proposal or an award negotiation.

  • Better organization and tracking of activities resulting in enhanced cross-utilization of staff and the ability to prioritize workflow in a consistent manner.

  • More detailed, complete and consistent metrics for proposals and awards providing tools to identify areas for increased efficiency and client support.

MSU Sponsored Projects’ Proposal Deadline Policy

College of Engineering’s Proposal Processing Timeline

The new policy requires that completed proposals must be provided to OSP at least three full business days prior to the sponsor's deadline to be considered on time. On-time proposals will take precedence over those considered late. Thank you for your continued cooperation and commitment to improving the process of proposal review, approval and timely submission. See the proposal submission deadline policy for a more detailed description.

  1. National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) Pilots Cooperative Agreement Program 2015-NIST-NSTIC-01

NIST is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to pilot online identity solutions that embrace and advance the NSTIC vision of an Identity Ecosystem Framework. Specifically, the Federal government seeks to initiate and support pilots that address the needs of individuals, private sector organizations, and all levels of government in accordance with the NSTIC Guiding Principles that identity solutions will be (1) privacy-enhancing and voluntary, (2) secure and resilient, (3) interoperable, and (4) cost-effective and easy-to-use. Pilots that maximize their contribution to the development of the broader Identity Ecosystem Framework through public forums such as the Identity Ecosystem

Steering Group (IDESG) are encouraged.

Deadline: March 17, 2015

  1. NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Biomedical Data Science Training Coordination Center (U24) RFA-ES-15-004

The purpose of this FOA is to solicit applications for a coordination center that will narrow the gap between the availability of biomedical big data and the ability of biomedical scientists to effectively utilize such data accurately, effectively, and efficiently. Achieving this goal requires: (1) bringing together individuals involved in training and career development programs to network and share experiences; and (2) engaging individuals developing open educational resources in meaningful dialogue to ensure that the resources they develop will be freely available and easy to access by the broader biomedical community. By the end of the award period, the Training Coordination Center (TCC) will be expected to have: (1) developed a network of scientists involved in biomedical big data science and (2) produced a discovery index that serves as a primary source for personalized access to publicly available biomedical data science educational resources.

Deadline: full proposal due March 17, 2015

  1. BRAIN Initiative:  Planning for Next Generation Human Brain Imaging (R24) RFA-MH-15-200

The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is a new Presidential project aimed at revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain. By accelerating the development and application of innovative technologies, researchers will be able to produce a new dynamic picture of the brain that, for the first time, shows how individual cells and complex neural circuits interact in both time and space. It is expected that the application of these new tools and technologies will ultimately lead to new ways to treat, cure, and even prevent brain disorders.

Deadline: full proposal due March 18, 2015

  1. Science of Learning: Collaborative Networks (SL-CN) NSF 15-532

This solicitation launches the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) next phase of research in the Science of Learning (SL). The new SL Program is designed to capitalize on the momentum created by the Science of Learning Centers (SLC) Program to continue developing an integrated, interdisciplinary SL community. The goals of the SL Program are to: advance fundamental knowledge about learning through integrated research; connect the research to specific scientific, technological, educational, and workforce challenges; and enable research communities to capitalize on new opportunities and discoveries. The Program is designed to support projects that – due to the activities supported and their interdisciplinarity and integrative breadth – do not fit into existing NSF programs.

Deadline: full proposal due March 18, 2015

  1. EarthCube NSF 13-529

EarthCube aims to create a well-connected and facile environment to share data and knowledge in an open, transparent, and inclusive manner, thus accelerating our ability to understand and predict the Earth system. Achieving EarthCube will require a long-term dialog between NSF and the interested scientific communities to develop cyberinfrastructure that is thoughtfully and systematically built to meet the current and future requirements of geoscientists. New avenues will be supported to gather community requirements and priorities for the elements of EarthCube, and to capture the best technologies to meet these current and future needs. The EarthCube portfolio will consist of interconnected projects and activities that engage the geosciences, cyberinfrastructure, computer science, and associated communities. The portfolio of activities and funding opportunities will evolve over time depending on the status of the EarthCube effort and the scientific and cultural needs of the geosciences community.

Deadline: March 19, 2015
