1. Success Stories Annis Water Resources Ins tute Gets $250,000 grant for Outreach, Educa on, from GVNow,  October 11, 2012  Researchers at Grand Valley State University’s Annis Water Resources Ins tute will be able to con nue extensive Great Lakes educa on and outreach programs through 2014 a er receiving a $250,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protec on Agency. The grant will fund the Coordinated Vessel‐Based Educa on and Out‐ reach Ac vi es program, which delivers onboard educa onal experi‐ ences for the general public, public officials, educators and K‐12 stu‐ dents in strategic ports of call around the Great Lakes. The program has been in place for two years, and is a coordinated effort between AWRI, Michigan State Uni‐ versity’s Sea Grant Extension Program and the Inland Seas Educa on Associa on. The two‐year grant will al‐ low program organizers, including AWRI associate research scien st Janet Vail, to con nue coordinated efforts of school research vessels to address educa on and outreach goals. “Being on an outreach and educa on vessel provides a unique opportunity to experience the Great Lakes through the lens of a scien st, and helps adults and children alike to gain an understanding of ecosystem health and water quality,” Vail said. “The tours also serve as a venue for par cipants to talk about their con‐ cerns about local bodies of water, and what can be done to help restore them.” AWRI achieves outreach and educa on goals on the Great Lakes through the Making Lake Michigan Great program, which has visited 33 ports of call over 15 years, including Manitowoc and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Ludington, White Lake, and Holland in 2012 alone.

1. Success Stories, Cont.  Area Students Get Science Field Trips Thanks to Alcoa Grant Funds, from October 16, 2012  More than 500 students from Montague and Whitehall public schools will experience hands‐on science field trips at Grand Valley’s Annis Water Resources Ins tute during 2012 and 2013, thanks to a $15,000 grant from the Alcoa Founda on. The grant will be used to support the trips on AWRI’s largest research vessel, the 65‐foot W.G. Jackson, which will allow students to use the scien fic exper se of the educators and crew along with the research tools aboard the boat to study sustainability and local water resources. The experience on the vessel provides hands‐on science and brings the excitement of scien fic research alive for the students. The vessel has an onboard laboratory where students analyze water samples from various sites to learn about what factors contribute to water quality. Students will be introduced to the Great Lakes Literacy Principles, and posi ve ac ons they can take to be stewards of the environment. To see the rest of this story on GVNow, click here.

2. News  Upcoming NSF Guide Will Detail Broader Impacts Cer fica on  Under the Na onal Science Founda on (NSF) pending revised awards guidance, the agency will require re‐ search ins tu ons to cer fy that they support the broader impacts of the grant applica on proposed by prin‐ cipal inves gators. NSF is planning to release a revised Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures (PAPP) Guide in October, which will become effec ve in January 2013. It will include revised language on the two factors covered un‐ der the merit review criteria. Those who submit proposals to NSF will now have to provide statements that address the intellectual merit of the proposed ac vity and the broader impacts that are expected to result from the project. There will also be a new requirement to provide an overview of what the project will accomplish. The FastLane and forms will include two boxes to input the intellectual merit and the broader impacts of the proposal. Further, PIs will be required to provide evidence of ins tu onal support for broader impacts. There will also be a new cer fica on added to be signed by the authorized organiza onal representa ve to indicate and confirm ins tu onal support. The new PAPP Guide will also include a revision of cost sharing, which will require applicants to provide a more detailed descrip on of necessary resources. If you have any ques ons about the new PAPP Guide, don’t hesitate to contact the OSP.

3. Grants Resource Center News, Cont. NIH Offers FCOI Compliance Support, from GrantWeek, September 24, 2012  The Na onal Ins tutes of Health (NIH) Division of Grants Compliance and Oversight (DGCO) has established the Financial Conflicts of Interest (FCOI) Compliance Program to assist ins tu ons in aligning their policies with the 2011 revision of federal regula ons to promote objec vity in research. Full compliance was required beginning August 24, 2012. The FCOI regula ons were revised to increase accountability and enhance regulatory compliance and effec‐ ve Ins tu onal management of inves gators’ FCOIs. The new FCOI Compliance Program has two goals. The first is to establish NIH’s oversight responsibili es to assure grantee compliance with FCOI requirements. The second is to assist grantees in fully developing and implemen ng their FCOI policies by providing construc ve feedback. DGCO staff will offer technical assistance as needed to help answer grantees’ ques ons and clarify the FCOI requirements. NIH plans to expand the FCOI Compliance Program during FY 13. As the DGCO personnel re‐ view ins tu onal policies in the coming months, they plan to share results broadly across the research com‐ munity. In the mean me, direct specific ques ons to 301/435‐0949 or FCOI

OMB Projects Sequester Impact, Organiza ons React, from GrantWeek, September 17, 2012  On September 14, 2012, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a 394‐page report providing preliminary es mates of the funding cuts that would be expected beginning January 2, 2013, if sequestra on is not averted. In the report’s introduc on, OMB reminds Congress, “The sequestra on itself was never in‐ tended to be implemented.” It was advanced instead within the Budget Control Act of 2011 as “a mechanism to force” a bipar san deficit‐reduc on compromise. Groups from every sector are reac ng to the projec ons and calling for a reprieve. The American Associa on for the Advancement of Science’s Science magazine provides a roundup of scien fic organiza ons’ reac ons, and Inside Higher Ed analyzes the report’s importance to the higher educa on sector. See background infor‐ ma on in an early look at “How Sequestra on Would Work” by the Center for American Progress. On September 20, 2012, the Informa on Technology & Innova on Founda on (ITIF), will host a discussion on its new report, “Ea ng Our Seed Corn: Sequestra on, R&D, Innova on and U.S. Economic Growth.” The pres‐ idents of ITIF, the Associa on of American Universi es, customer channels at ThermoFisher, and medical sci‐ ences at Life Technologies will par cipate. ITIF’s September 14, 2012 analysis of sequestra on’s poten al im‐ pact on technology and innova on funding provides background informa on. Cont. on Next Page

3. Grants Resource Center News, Cont. OMB Projects Sequester Impact, Cont.  Remember that OMB’s detailed preliminary analysis and interest groups’ aggrieved reac ons are s ll com‐ for ngly subjunc ve. They are aimed at prodding Congress and the rest of the government toward though ul trimming, while me s ll remains to dodge what OMB calls the “blunt and indiscriminate instru‐ ment” of sequestra on. The best we can do to drive ins tu onal research and sponsored programs momen‐ tum is to plan for the future that awaits with or without sequestra on. Regardless of the sequestra on outcome, the government is going to con nue the hunt for programs that overlap or duplicate efforts. So instead of wai ng faithfully for news on the next compe on of a par cular program — whose funding cannot, in any economy, be counted on — research and sponsored programs officers do the best service to their campus colleagues by encouraging a hedging of bets. The best policy re‐ mains to plan proposals around real needs, appropriate interven ons, realis c budgets, and manageable melines, all while building rela onships with a network of poten al funders and partners who might catch a worthy project, even if the bo om falls out of a funding source that seemed a sure bet.
