Current & Pending (Other) Support

Main content start

All federal sponsors and most non-federal require investigators and project senior/key personnel to disclose in proposals and/or during the award process and over the lives of awards, all current and pending (other) resources made available in support of, or related to, all of their research.

Not properly disclosing all resources in accordance with a sponsor's requirements can have serious consequences. It is critical to closely review and adhere to each sponsor’s specific disclosure requirements.
