You may have heard the welcome news that a Federal effort is underway to transition to common disclosure forms for the Bio-sketch and Current & Pending (and Other) Support reports that all federal sponsors will be strongly encouraged to use for financial assistance funding. NSF is serving as steward of those forms and is currently soliciting input on the drafts. OCGA is currently reviewing the forms and we welcome and encourage input from campus. The documents for which NSF is seeking comments are:
a. A common Biographical Sketch form, including data elements and associated instructions;
b. A common Current and Pending (Other) Support form, including data elements and associated instructions; and
c. An excel spreadsheet that summarizes all the data elements, as well as their data attributes.
Please provide comments or suggestions to OCGA by emailing Linda Phung (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 14, 2022, and we will collate for a UCLA response.
Thank you for your input and thoughts on this important initiative.
