NSF collects Current and Pending Support documents at the time of submission.  

Who Reports: Individuals who contribute to the scientific development or execution of a project in a substantive, measurable way, whether or not they receive salaries or compensation under the grant. Typically, these individuals have doctoral or other professional degrees, although others such as consultants and postdoctoral researchers may be considered senior/key personnel if their involvement meets this definition. (PI/Co-PI/Senior Personnel)

What to Report: 

•Current and pending support includes the proposal being submitted, ongoing projects, and any proposal currently under consideration, from all sources, regardless of whether the support is provided through the proposing organization or is provided directly to the individual.  NSF has clarified that start-up packages provided to the individual from the proposing organization do not have to be reported.  Gifts also do not need to be reported.

•Current and Pending Support includes all resources made available to an individual in support of and/or related to all of his/her research efforts, regardless of whether or not they have monetary value. 

•Concurrent submission of a proposal to other organizations will not prejudice its review by NSF, if disclosed. 

•Please enter your support entries so they are grouped together based on the "Status of Support" and are in the order of Current, Pending, Submission Planned, and Transfer of Support from top to bottom. 

Resources: Current and Pending Support must be submitted using the NSF-Approved Formats for Current and Pending Support ; FAQs on Current and Pending Support (; Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 22-1); NSF Pre-award and Post-award Disclosures Relating to the Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support
