NSF: Cooperative Agreement Terms & Conditions Revised for E.O. 14042

The NSF Cooperative Agreement Financial and Administrative Terms and Conditions (CA-FATC) have been updated to implement Executive Order 14042, Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors.

The revised CA-FATC will apply to all new NSF cooperative agreements and funding amendments to existing cooperative agreements made on or after October 25, 2021.

Each agency is issuing its own implementing memo and agencies are being encouraged to expand use of the FAR clause beyond what’s required. Please note that the Executive Order exempts grants, however.
