Important Information for Proposers
ATTENTION: Proposers using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template for more than 10 senior project personnel will encounter proposal print preview issues. Please see the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information website for updated guidance.
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Proposals are solicited to manage and operate the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC) through a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF). NAIC provides Federally-funded, ground-based observing facilities for radio astronomy, planetary radar, and terrestrial aeronomy. Proposals should cover the five-year period beginning October 1, 2005, and should describe how the proposer will provide forefront observing capabilities and support for US astronomers; lead development of new instruments and techniques; support a top quality scientific staff; archive and disseminate observational results; provide education programs at all levels; and coordinate partnerships with universities, non-Federal observatories, and industry in support of these objectives.
