Important notice about NSF move and downtime

Submitted by Sarah Hancock

The National Science Foundation is moving its Data Center IT servers to the foundation's new headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, from 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time June 30, through 6 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time July 4, to prepare for NSF staff relocation in August 2017. The NSF website, FastLane, and Research.gov will be unavailable during this outage period. 

Because there will be no access to these websites, proposals cannot be submitted in FastLane, and project reports and cash requests cannot be submitted in Research.gov. However, previously saved information and uploaded documents in FastLane and Research.gov, including in-process proposals and reports, will be accessible after the Data Center move. This move has been scheduled around a holiday weekend to minimize the system's downtime and reduce the impact on the research community and NSF staff. Find more information.
