Proposers to ROSES-2005 program elements with NOI due dates after July 15, 2005, should refer to the 2005 NRA Proposers' Guidebook. Proposers to ROSES-2005 elements with NOI due dates prior to July 15, 2005, should read and follow the directions provided in the notice on this page titled "Notice to proposers responding to NNH05DA001N, "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences 2005" (ROSES-2005)."


Previous Notices and Versions:

Notice to proposers responding to NNH05DA001N, Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences 2005" (ROSES-2005).

Section IV(a) of ROSES-2005 incorporates by reference the 2005 edition of the "Guidebook for Proposers responding to a NASA Research Announcement" (hereafter referred to as the 2005 Guidebook). ROSES-2005 makes several references to requirements that are given in the 2005 Guidebook. At this time (May 2005), the 2005 Guidebook is not available for proposers to ROSES-2005 program elements.

Proposers to ROSES-2005 program elements with NOI due dates prior to July 15, 2005, should refer to the 2004 edition of the "Guidebook for Proposers responding to a NASA Research Announcement" (2004 Guidebook, http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/procurement/nraguidebook/) for requirements subject to the following comments:

Starting in January of 2005, NASA began using its updated proposal and evaluation automated management system known as NSPIRES (http://nspires.nasaprs.com/). NSPIRES is designed to be capable of receiving full electronic proposals directly (or through Grants.gov for those NRA solicitations that will not be exclusively awarding contracts). It is expected, however, that a phased implementation of NSPIRES capabilities will occur. Please examine each solicitation (or element thereof for any omnibus solicitation) to verify the extent to which NSPIRES capabilities will be employed. NSPIRES will provide extensive assistance for offerors, including on-line assistance and an available help desk.

Carryover funds will no longer be included as part of the budget proposal. NASA reserves the right to use unexpended funds from prior grant awards, but the availability of such funds will not be an element of proposal submission. This is a change to Section 2.3.11(a) of the 2004 Guidebook.

It is no longer permitted to append to the proposal reprints from and/or preprints for peer-reviewed publications; this is a change to Section 2.3.13 of the 2004 Guidebook.


NEW NOTICE REGARDING
THE 2005 NRA PROPOSERS' GUIDE

Release of the 2005 NRA Proposers' Guide has been delayed. The Guidebook is still in preparation. We now anticipate the 2005 NRA Proposers' Guide will be available no later than the first week of March, 2005. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.

As noted previously, the new 2005 Guidebook will provide updates on NASA requirements for responding to NASA Research Announcements, including discussion of proposal elements and structure for use with the NSPIRES web-based integrated proposal and peer review management system. In the interim, general information about NASA's NRA processes can be found by referring to the 2004 NRA Proposers' Guidebook, but users are cautioned that the proposal format for NASA's 2005 NRAs has been revised to allow integration with Grants.Gov in the near future.

 


**** NOTICE FOR 2005 NRA PROPOSERS ****

The 2005 NRA Proposers' Guide will be released soon. We anticipate the 2005 NRA Proposers' Guide will be available no later than February 11, 2005. The new 2005 Guidebook will provide updates on NASA requirements for responding to NASA Research Announcements, including discussion of proposal elements and structure for use with the NSPIRES web-based integrated proposal and peer review management system. In the interim, general information about NASA's NRA processes can be found by referring to the 2004 NRA Proposers' Guidebook, but users are cautioned that the proposal format for NASA's 2005 NRAs has been revised to allow integration with Grants.Gov in the near future.
