NSF has received requests for flexibility in deadline dates occurring between September 27th through October 1st as a result of the tremendous damage and power outages caused by Hurricane Jeanne. As a result of this situation, some Sponsored Projects Offices in these areas may be experiencing difficulties or are presently unable to submit proposals to NSF.

NSF is sympathetic to the situation being faced by the impacted organizations and we will work with you on a case-by-case basis to address your specific issues regarding proposal deadlines.

Flexibility in meeting announced deadline dates is approved subject to the following provisions:

1) an e-mail notification (or phone notification if e-mail is unavailable) must be sent to the cognizant NSF program officer informing NSF of the organization's intent to submit a "late proposal"; and

2) the September 27th through October 1st deadlines will be extended 5 business days beyond the applicable deadline; these extensions will be granted on a case-by-case basis.

Any questions regarding this advisory should be directed to the Policy Office in the Division of Institution & Award Support at (703) 292-8243 or by e-mail at: policy@nsf.gov.
