The National Science Foundation (NSF) released an updated Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) on June 22, 2021. The new PAPPG is effective on October 4, 2021. NSF requires the use of an NSF-approved format to prepare Current and Pending Support.
Current and pending support information must be separately provided through use of an NSF-approved format, for each individual designated as senior personnel on the proposal. Current and pending support includes all resources made available to an individual in support of and/or related to all of his/her research efforts, regardless of whether or not they have monetary value. Current and pending support also includes in-kind contributions (such as office/laboratory space, equipment, supplies, employees, students. In-kind contributions not intended for use on the project/proposal being proposed that have associated time commitments also must be reported.
Current and pending support information must be provided for the proposed project, for ongoing projects, and for any proposals currently under consideration from whatever source irrespective of whether such support is provided through the proposing organization or is provided directly to the individual. This includes, for example, Federal, State, local, foreign, public, or private foundations, non-profit organizations, industrial or other commercial organizations, or internal funds allocated toward specific projects.
