NSF PAPPG 23-1 goes into effect on Mon. January 30, 2023. Two of the changes will require investigators to sign and certify, under penalty of perjury and the False Claim Act, their biosketches and current and pending documents. NSF is no longer providing fillable PDF documents. These documents are now required to be completed in SciENcv. Information on the biographical sketch can be found here.

PIs and OSRP must now prepare investigator current and pending support in SciENcv. In order to do so, you will need to delegate access to your SciENcv profile to OSRP.
