NSF to Implement Regulatory Flexibility Authorized by OMB

On March 19, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued Memorandum M-20-17 to federal agencies granting them the authority to provide regulatory flexibility to entities conducting federal research as they struggle to response to the coronavirus.  Earlier today, NSF issued guidance on its implementation of the OMB memo.

Along with the guidance, NSF Director France Cordova issued a notice to the science and engineering community with respect to NSF and COVID-19.
