The following information is provided to update you on changes that will be made to NSPIRES on August 8, 2009. These changes will affect submission of proposals to NASA, and are being implemented to improve the process by which potential conflicts of interest are determined.
For a proposal to be submitted after August 7, 2009, all proposal team members must confirm an organizational relationship, i.e., identify the organization through which they are participating in a given proposal. A proposal will not be able to be submitted if an organizational relationship is missing for any team member, regardless of role on the proposal (e.g. Co-I, collaborator, etc).
Explanatory procedures are in place here http://nspires.nasaprs.com/tutorials/UG_TM_Confirm.pdf to guide both existing and prospective team members through this process.
