IMPORTANT: New NSF User Accounts Coming Monday, March 26, 2018

March 20, 2018

National Science Foundation (NSF)NSF is making major changes to the way the research community registers new users and maintains account information. and Fastlane users will now have a single profile and a unique identifier (i.e., NSF ID) for signing in to FastLane and for proposal and award activities.  This means that ORSP will no longer register users to submit proposals to NSF or FastLane. 

  • Instead, new users will be able to register directly through on or after March 26, 2018.
  • Existing users in Fastlane will be migrated to the new system through a simple, one-time operation when signing in to FastLane or after the new functionality is released. Users with existing NSF accounts can access the NSF ID Lookup page for their NSF ID or retrieve forgotten passwords for established NSF accounts.
