NSFNSF Forms and Templates (XLSX)NSF is implementing a new pilot that will: 1) standardize collaborator and other affiliation information across the Foundation; and 2) ensure that such information is submitted in a searchable format.

Effective April 24, 2017, NSF will require the use of the spreadsheet linked below as a template for identifying collaborators and other affiliations. The FastLane Collaborators and Other Affiliations screens will link to the new template and instructions on the Policy Office webpage at: https://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/coa.jsp. The spreadsheet has been developed to be fillable, however, the content and format requirements must not be altered by the user. This spreadsheet can be saved in .xlsx or .xls format, and directly uploaded into FastLane as a Collaborators and Other Affiliations Single Copy Document.

It is therefore imperative that this document be uploaded in .xlsx or .xls only. Uploading a document in any format other than .xlsx or .xls may delay the timely processing and review of your proposal
