Current and Pending Support Guidelines

Current and Pending (Other) Support information is used to assess the capacity of a researcher to carry out the study as proposed and helps assess any potential scientific and budgetary overlap/duplication, as well as overcommitment with the project being proposed.

The mandate to use SciENcv only for the preparation of Current and Pending (Other) Support information will go into effect for new proposals submitted or due on or after October 23, 2023. In the interim, proposers may continue to prepare and submit this document via use of SciENcv. 

The formats of Current and Pending (Other) Support are as follows:

  1. Identifying Information: Name of the senior person, ORCID ID, current position title.
  2. Organization and Location
  3. Projects/Proposals: In this section, disclose and detail ALL existing projects, as well as all projects currently under consideration for funding.
  4. In-Kind Contributions: In this section, disclose ALL in-kind contributions related to current and pending support. In-kind contributions include, but are not limited to, office/laboratory space, equipment, supplies, and employee or student resources.
  5. Certification: When the individual signs the certification on behalf of themselves, they are certifying that the information is current, accurate, and complete.
