NASA and U.S. Government policies address research and personal misconduct, and provide avenues for reporting potential violations.
Any individual comfortable doing so is encouraged to contact the panel/solicitation program official directly. When a NASA individual responsible for reviews receives allegations of misconduct, etc. from a reviewer/panel, they must notify the NASA Office of Inspector General (OIG) immediately. All individuals are encouraged to read the NASA websites, which include information on reporting options outside of the NASA programs.
The descriptions of research misconduct and NASA’s science policies can be found at: https://www.nasa.gov/offices/ocs/science_policies.
Anyone engaged in or observing any aspect of NASA-supported research activities (from peer review to the final publication of results), including a non-NASA individual, may make a misconduct allegation directly to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) by phone at 1-800-424-9183 or online at: https://oig.nasa.gov/cyberhotline.html.
As a condition of receipt of NASA funding, the awarded institution acknowledges and agrees to comply (and require any subgrantees, contractors, successors, transferees, and assignees to comply) with applicable provisions of national laws and policies prohibiting discrimination. For more information visit: https://missionstem.nasa.gov/compliance-requirements-nasa-grantees.html.
If an individual has been harassed or discriminated against, or has witnessed someone else being harassed or discriminated against, related to a NASA award and/or a NASA proposal under review, they may be able to file a complaint through NASA’s Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity (ODEO) at: https://missionstem.nasa.gov/filing-a-complaint.html.
- In observance of Memorial Day, the NSPIRES Help Desk will be closed on Monday, May 29, 2023.
Supporting research in science and technology is an important part of NASA's overall mission. NASA solicits this research through the release of various research announcements in a wide range of science and technology disciplines. NASA uses a peer review process to evaluate and select research proposals submitted in response to these research announcements. Researchers can help NASA achieve national research objectives by submitting research proposals and conducting awarded research.
NSPIRES now allow users to SEARCH for and view Proposals and NOIs due in 30 days, FUTURE, and OPEN, CLOSED/PAST NASA research announcements. The full text of the Solicitation Announcements and information about selected proposals, if available, can be viewed and downloaded.

Solicitations and selected proposals for years prior to NSPIRES implementation, January 1, 2005, were posted manually; therefore, some postings for years 2000-2004 may not be as complete as those posted through the NSPIRES system from 2005 to the present.
To submit a research proposal to NASA, individuals and the organizations with which they are affiliated must be registered in NSPIRES. Individuals may register at any time. Organizations are required to have a valid registration with the System for Award Management (SAM) before they can register in NSPIRES.
Anyone can become a registered user of NSPIRES. Registration is required in order to:
However, in order to submit proposals or manage an organization, a user must be affiliated with an organization registered with NSPIRES.Begin User Registration
Registering with NSPIRES will enable your organization to manage and submit proposals to NASA for consideration of an award.
Organizations that would like to register with NSPIRES are required to have a valid registration with the System for Award Management (SAM). Once the organization has a SAM record, the listed Organization Point of Contact must register as a user with NSPIRES, log on, then begin the organization registration process.
OMB Approval Information:
Information collected by this website is authorized by OMB Number 2700-0092.
In order to submit a proposal, an organization must have a valid SAM registration. This process can take several days so please begin well in advance of the proposal due date. Organizations that do not have a valid Cage Code must contact the NSPIRES Help Desk immediately in order to finalize organization registration.Continue Reading
