NSF Biosketches - Updates to template

NSF is designating SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) as an NSF-approved template and are encouraging faculty to use SciENcv to prepare their biographical sketches for NSF proposals. NSF encourages faculty to begin using this template as January 2020 is estimate for when it will be mandatory. A link to an FAQ page regarding SciENcv can be found here and an instructional video can be viewed here.

Updates to SPOOF + Reimbursement Data

After consideration of the long and often unreasonable 45-day timeline, we have decided to change our goal for timing of SPOOF submission.
Our new goal is that at least 90% of contract and grant proposals will be submitted through SPOOF at least 30 days from project deadline.

Great news!
The staff has been working on improving reimbursement time to 22 business days (1 month) and have been super successful!
We will continue to monitor performance by month and note any trends such as holiday delays.
