Agency Updates During Lapse in Federal Funding -- Last Update 11/4/2013
The Office of Sponsored Programs, a unit within Research, Graduate School, Continuing Studies, and International Programs, is keeping abreast of the announcements coming from federal agencies to their grantees about the now temporarily re-open federal government. PIs and PDs should expect emails from their sponsors with instructions as well as expect there to be many shifts in originally posted deadlines, review panels, and competition announcements. Below, please find a listing, by agency or grant-related organization, with links to their statements or websites that are open again for business. Please keep in mind that each agency's expectations will be unique. If you have already received a communication from your agency regarding their plans, please share those emails or letters with the OSP.
