Partial Government Shutdown

Please see the information below regarding the partial government shutdown.  While this won’t affect submitting proposals, reports and various deliverables, it will affect the review process.  OSP will continue to process actions as scheduled and will keep you apprised if there are any unexpected delays.  Some key takeaways:

Affected US Departments & Agencies:

·         National Science Foundation (NSF)

·         National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

·         National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Affected Sponsor Applications/Proposals

Grants.gov: We expect Grants.gov will be up and that proposals can be submitted, but they will not be forwarded to affected federal sponsor agencies. These applications will be in a holding pattern in Grants.gov.

Other: We will provide details on affected sponsor systems used for proposal submission, as they become known

Please contact MBL OSP with any questions or concerns.
