Dear Colleagues:
> NSF is currently preparing for issuance of the fall 2013 publication of the revised Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) in October 2013, with an anticipated effective date of January 2014.  The Foundation formally announced our intention to revise the PAPPG in the Federal Register on May 30, 2013 and is soliciting public comment as part of this process.  NSF is accepting comments from the external community until COB June 28, 2013.
> The upcoming release contains revisions across a broad range of topics, such as clarifications on proposal preparation and submission; information on environmental compliance; and updates on reporting requirements and financial payments.  A detailed summary of significant proposed changes is included at the beginning of the draft document.
> The Foundation is committed to working with the NSF and awardee communities to keep them apprised of these changes, and the Policy Office in the Division of Institution and Award Support (DIAS) is spearheading communication for this effort.
> Below are some useful materials:
> * Draft PAPPG <http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/papp/papp14_1/draftpappg_june2013.pdf>; and
> * Federal Register announcement<http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-05-30/pdf/2013-12861.pdf>.
