Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 20-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after June 1, 2020. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 20-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The intent of the Community Instruments and Facilities (CIF) solicitation is to provide the NSF-sponsored atmospheric sciences research community with access to specialized instrumentation for field and laboratory-based studies. The CIF solicitation requests proposals from instrument and facility providers who will make their equipment available for community use through an NSF-defined request process. Support will be provided for limited technician time, minor upgrades, and travel for outreach.
The Community Instruments and Facilities (CIF) solicitation is intended to expand the suite of instruments and facilities available to the atmospheric science community supported by NSF. Proposals funded through this solicitation will promote research and education in areas currently supported by the Atmospheric Science programs.
