Reminder – NSF project reporting transitions from FastLane to

The OVPR and the Office of Sponsored Programs would like to remind faculty that the National Science Foundation has transitioned its reporting functions from FastLane to  All required NSF reports, including final, annual and interim project reports, as well as the project outcomes report, must now be submitted through the new system.

To log in and submit reports, go to and select “NSF User” from the drop-down menu.  You will be prompted to log in using your NSF ID and password. These are the same as the ID and password which you previously used to sign into FastLane.  After you log in, you will be directed to your project report dashboard, where you can see any required reports for your awards.  From the dashboard, you can create, edit and submit reports for each award.

Investigators are responsible for submitting their own project reports for all NSF-funded research.  If you have questions about using the new system, click here for more information from, or contact your academic unit’s assigned OSP coordinator.
