NSF to Delay Some 2023 PAPPG Requirements

Calling the CHIPS and Science Act a “multi-hundred-page piece of legislation,” National Science Foundation (NSF) Policy Head Jean Feldman said there are some provisions NSF officials “are jumping on right out of the box. We are spending a tremendous amount of time going over all the details, the nitty gritty details, figuring out what NSF requirements are, what changes will be made to NSF policies and procedures, what new programs, the whole nine yards.”

Feldman made her remarks at a recent meeting of the Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP).[1][2]

The law “expands the responsible and ethical conduct of research [RECR] training,” making it mandatory for “both faculty and for senior personnel,” Feldman added, noting Congress also specified three areas that must be addressed.

These are mentor training and mentorship; training to raise awareness of potential research security threats; and federal export control, disclosure, and reporting requirements, according to the legislation.

RECR is another new term, along with malign talent programs, with which research compliance officials will need to become familiar, thanks to the CHIPS Act.
