The CIRES Proposal Team is checking the federal funding agency sites daily to identify any proposal due date extensions resulting from the lengthy shutdown. As we become aware of extensions, the team will communicate directly with the PIs affected.

NSF has created a Resumption of Operation Page and asked that proposers, awardees and reviewers who have questions, await communication from the agency.

Feel free to email proposal questions directly to the CIRES Proposals Team.

CIRES Finance will continue working with PIs to process award actions (e.g., no-cost extensions, supplemental funding requests, etc.), as needed. We encourage PIs to submit progress reports on-time in order to trigger the next release of funds for continuing awards. Please direct any questions to your CIRES Finance Manager.

Travelers may continue to prepare domestic and international trip requests, in accordance with the procedures posted on InsideCIRES. Travelers should resume working with their NOAA divisions to obtain the appropriate acknowledgements for upcoming trips. Please direct any questions to the CIRES Travel Team.
