Pathways to Success Q&A WHAT IS THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION? The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense..." NSF is vital because we support basic research and people to create knowledge that

transforms the future. This type of support: Is a primary driver of the U.S. economy Enhances the nation's security Advances knowledge to sustain global leadership With an annual budget of $7.8 billion (FY 2018), we are the funding source for approximately 27 percent of the total federal budget for basic research conducted at U.S. colleges and universities. In many fields such as mathematics, computer science and the social sciences, NSF is the major source of federal backing.

NSF is located at 2415 Eisenhower Avenue, Alexandria VA 22314 The NSF is organized into: 2 Offices 9 Divisions 7 Directorates 32 Divisions For a complete listing of the Directorates and Divisions please visit www.nsf.gov The National Science Board oversees the NSF.

STATISTICS FISCAL YEAR 2017 PROPOSAL & AWARD POLICIES AND PROCEDURES GUIDE NSF 18-1 WHAT IS YOUR ROLE? Principal Investigator (PI) means the individual(s) designated by the proposer, and approved by NSF, who will be responsible for the scientific or technical direction of the project. The PI and any identified Co-PIs, however, will be jointly responsible for submission of the requisite project reports.

Program Officer (PO) The NSF program officer reviews the proposal and analyzes the input received from the external reviewers. After scientific, technical and programmatic review and consideration of appropriate factors, the program officer makes an "award" or "decline" recommendation to the division director Grants Management Specialist/Grants Officer A DGA officer reviews the recommendation from the program division/office for business, financial and policy implications, and the processing and issuance of a grant or cooperative agreement. DGA generally makes awards to academic institutions within 30 days after the program division/office makes its recommendation. Office of Sponsored Research (OSP)/ Sponsored Research Officer (SPO) - Full responsibility for the conduct

of project activity and for adhering to the award conditions. Must ensure that the institution is in compliance to all applicable Federal requirements and to manage all expenditures and actions prudently. And also ensures that expenditures are allowable, allocable, and reasonable. WORKING RELATIONSHIPS DIVISION OF GRANTS AND AGREEMENTS (DGA) What Kind of Awards are Issued by DGA?

Assistance Awards - the principal purpose of which is to transfer anything of value from NSF to the grantee for them to carry out a public purpose; and not to acquire property or services for NSFs direct benefit or use. Grants (Standard and Continuing) Cooperative Agreements Fellowships How Many Actions Does DGA Process?

DGA typically approves approximately 17,000 funded actions, and 4,000 non-funded actions each year. DGAS ROLE IN THE AWARD PROCESS NEW AWARDEE AND UPDATED PERFORMER INFORMATION New Awardee A new awardee is an institution (the award is made to the institution, not the PI) that has never received an NSF grant award.

Before an NSF award is made to a New Awardee institution, a review is completed by DGA (if awarded amount will be $225K or under) or NSFs Cost Analysis and Pre Award Branch (CAAP) (if awarded is over $225K) to verify the accounting system capability and the institutions financial viability to be able to handle the federal funding. Updated Performer An institution that has received NSF awards, but hasnt had an award in 5 years (end date of last award). NEW AWARDEE/UPDATED PERFORMER

PACKAGE The New Awardee/Updated Performer Package will be requested from the Office of Sponsored Research in the form of an email and the required documents are to be returned within 15 days. Examples of information requested are: Copy of the Project Cost Ledger Institutions policies and procedures on Participant Support, Allowability of Costs and Subawards Last 2 years of financial statements

Once your information is received, it can take up to 60 days for the CAAP decision to be made. THE DGA REVIEW PROCESS ITEMS THAT WILL DELAY PROCESSING Federally Negotiated Indirect Cost Rate (NICRA) Upon completing your budget, you must use your current NICRA for your institution and any

subawards. If you or your subaward doesnt not have a rate, you (they) can use the 10% de minimis rate (Modified Total Direct Cost). Budget and Justification Issues Unallowable costs usually found in Budget Line Items F. Participant Support and G. 6. Other Direct Costs that arent fully described in the budget justification. Institutional Review Board (IRB) Approval Documentation This

documentation NEEDS to be submitted before the Proposal can receive funding. INDIRECT COST CALCULATION Please understand the terms of your NICRA, as it explains what your rate is along with the base. Base Salaries and Wages; Salaries, Wages, and Fringe Benefits; or Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC). If your base is Salaries and Wages and your indirect cost rate is 35%. Then you would

simply multiply the total for Salaries and Wages by 35% and the answer is the indirect cost amount. If your base is Salaries, Wages, and Fringe Benefits and your indirect cost rate is 35%. Then you would simply multiply the total for Salaries, Wages, and Fringe Benefits by 35% and the answer is the indirect cost amount. INDIRECT COST CALCULATION MODIFIED TOTAL DIRECT COSTS (MTDC) If you have a MTDC base rate agreement you must exclude:

participant support equipment in excess of $5,000 you will pay indirect costs for subawards the first $25K of each subaward (regardless of the length of the award), the remaining amount is excluded Tuition May be other exclusions, please refer to your rate agreement SAMPLE MTDC INDIRECT COST CALCULATION

You have been awarded a 5 year grant with the following details: Indirect Cost rate is 45%, Equipment costs $20K, 2 subawards (1 for 100K and the other for $30K), Participant Support Costs $150K, and tuition costs (not participant support) $30K. Your current total direct costs on your budget (prior to calculation) is at $1M. Total direct costs - $1M Subtract equipment ($20K) Subtract subaward excess ($80K) Subtract participant support (150K) Subtract tuition costs ($30K)

$720,000 X 45% = $324,000 (indirect cost amount) NOTIFICATION OF AWARD Award Letter by email Solicitation 16 538 Research Terms and Conditions (RTCs), occasional special conditions, and other documents incorporated by reference PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS!
