NSF information regarding federal shutdown

The National Science Foundation has put out some information regarding its operations during a possible shutdown of the federal government.  If the government shuts down:

  • As of midnight, the NSF website, FastLane, Research.gov, any NSF e-mail address and all telephones will be unavailable.
  • NSF grants will not be obligated or disbursed during the funding hiatus.
  • Current awardees may continue their operations with NSF funds that are already obligated.

The official NSF policy for shutdown procedures is available here: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2011/shutdown11001/shutdown11001.pdf.
