TIP - Update for Proposers Using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Template

Proposers will experience proposal print preview errors if there are more than 10 individuals designated as senior project personnel when using the COA template. The following information regarding Collaborators and Other Affiliations (COA) must be separately provided for each individual identified as senior project personnel. The COA information must be provided through use of the COA template. If there are more than 10 individuals designated as senior project personnel on the proposal, or if there are print preview issues when using the COA template, each completed template must be saved as a .txt file [select the Text (Tab Delimited) option] rather than as an .xlsx or .xls file. This format will still enable preservation of searchable text and avoid delays in processing and review of the proposal.

For system-related questions, please contact FastLane User Support at 1-800-673-6188 or fastlane@nsf.gov. Policy-related questions regarding the content of the COA template should be directed to policy@nsf.gov.
