Summary

The National Science Foundation has pledged to go electronic with its entire grantsmaking process by October 2000. The agency plans to handle all grant applications, reviews, financial reports, and other communications about awards through an interactive Web-based system. The new policy, announced last month, has added urgency to federal efforts to ensure that all agencies develop compatible digital systems for handling research grants.
