A message from the OVCR Office of Research Science and Security, Office of Sponsored Programs, and UNC School of Medicine’s Sponsored Programs Office

We previously announced upcoming changes from the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) that standardizes requirements for Current and Pending (Other) Support and Biographical Sketch (Biosketch) documents. This policy requires federal research funding agencies to use common disclosure forms for these portions of funding application packages for grants and cooperative agreements.

To support adherence to this policy, we are pleased to announce a new website that:

  • Documents these changes
  • Provides timelines for implementation by various federal agencies
  • Includes other helpful tools and information for faculty and staff

Website Link:

Formal training modules on these changes will be launched later this year. Updates will be shared as they become available.

We consider the website a living document and welcome your feedback. Please share any thoughts as you review it.

For immediate questions, comments, or observations, please contact Brian Collier, Director of Research Science and Security, at
