Subject: NEH/NSF Cutbacks
Many of you don't deal with federal programs, but for those of us in
one-person shops, I thought you'd be interested in the following notices.
Thanks a lot, Newt!
Subject: NEH Summer Stipend Program: $ for 1996 = cancelled
Due to a probable significant reduction in the US National
Endowment for the Humanities' appropriation for fiscal year,
1996, the October 2, 1995 deadline for NEH Summer Stipends has
been suspended. There will be no new deadline between October,
1995 and October, 1996.
For further information on NEH deadlines, please call the NEH
Public Information Office at 202 606 8400.
Please notify your colleagues.

GUIDANCE FOR NSF GRANTEES, CONTRACTORS AND OTHER AWARDEES IN THE
EVENT OF AN NSF SHUTDOWN
1. Awardees (grantees, recipients of cooperative agreements, contractors,
etc. - EXCEPT those working on-site at NSF) should continue performance under
their NSF awards during any NSF shutdown period to the extent funds are
available under their awards. (This should apply to over 95% of NSF awards.)
2. Payments by NSF to its awardees are expected to continue to be made,
using normal procedures, during any NSF shutdown period to the extent funds
are available under NSF awards.
3. Contractors who DO NOT have sufficient funds to continue operations
during any NSF shutdown period should notify their cognizant Contracting
Officer as soon as this is known. Continuation of any activity in the absence
of additional funding will be solely at their own risk.
4. Other awardees (grantees, recipients of cooperative agreements, etc.)
who DO NOT have funds available under their awards to continue activities
during any NSF shutdown period also are cautioned that continuation of
performance under their NSF awards is at the awardees own risk. It is
expected that after any NSF shutdown is over, NSF will obligate funds to those
awards that would have otherwise been funded. NSF cannot now authorize costs
exceeding available award amounts nor obligate the NSF to cover such costs.
EXCEPTION: Awardees undertaking or providing services or activities involving
the safety of human life or the protection of U.S. Government property, are
authorized to continue those limited functions necessary to meet those
responsibilities. NSF will obligate funds to cover those reasonable costs
after any NSF shutdown period is over.
5. Contractors, IPAs and others working on-site at NSF have been or will
be provided with other specific guidance.
6. Questions related to this guidance should be directed to NSF's
Division of Grants and Agreements or the Division of Contracts, Policy &
Oversight, as appropriate.
