Exceptions to the NSF Deadline Date Policy
In the event of a natural or anthropogenic disaster that interferes
with an organization's ability to meet a proposal submission deadline, NSF
has developed the following guidelines for use by impacted
organizations. These guidelines will take the place of the previous NSF
practice of posting notices to the NSF website regarding each specific event.
Flexibility in meeting announced deadline dates because of
a natural or anthropogenic disasters may be granted with the prior
approval of the cognizant NSF Program Officer. Proposers should contact the cognizant NSF Program Officer in the Division/Office to
which they intend to submit their proposal and request authorization to
submit a "late proposal." Such contact should be via e-mail (or
telephone, if e-mail is unavailable). Proposers should then follow the
written or verbal guidance provided by the cognizant
NSF Program Officer. Generally, NSF permits extension of the deadline by 5
business days. The Foundation, however, will work with each impacted organization
on a case-by-case basis to address their specific issue(s).
