For NSF Awardees: Project Reports Have Transitioned to Research.gov

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is happy to announce that project reporting has successfully been transitioned to Research.gov. This means that you will now log in to Research.gov to prepare and submit your final, annual, and interim project reports. You will also continue to use Research.gov to submit your Project Outcomes Reports.

Research.gov is NSF's grants management system that provides easy access to research-related information and grants management services in one location. Research.gov is the modernization of FastLane, providing the next generation of grants management capabilities for the research community.
