MSU Enlists New Feature to Help Simplify Your Access to www.research.gov
MSU is working diligently to help streamline and simplify required steps when developing your research proposal using www.research.gov (including NSF FastLane proposals). As mentioned in the notice sent out by MSU SPA (inserted below), you can now quickly log in using your MSU credentials to rapidly enter your Proposal Preparation page with fewer clicks. This upgrade pulls in your existing account and makes the process quicker and easier to access. This new access point does not replace your username and password, but will help to provide a new (faster) way to access your account.

We continue to strive to make MSU’s Research Community’s digital world better! Now, when accessing the NSF Research.Gov website you can use your MSU credentials for single sign-on authentication. To ‘Activate’ complete the following one-time process:
The Engineering Research Reactivation all-inclusive SharePoint page has helpful reopening resources, important processes, and documents that need to be completed and approved to "return to research". Please request access if prompted.
Where is my "LABORATORY PLAN FOR A SAFE RETURN" in the approval process?
You can see what step of the approval process your plan is on by looking under the “Engineering Research Reactivation” folders on the SharePoint site.
If the plan has been approved by the Department Chair, you can see if it has been sent to VPRI by clicking on “EGR ADR Review” > “At VPRI for Review”. If the plan is in the “At VPRI for Review” folder then it is currently being reviewed by VPRI.
To check to see if your plan has been completely approved by all required departments (DC, EGR Dean's Office, and VPRI), you can click on the “VPRI Final Approved Plans” folder. If your plan is in the “VPRI Final Approved Plans” folder then you approved to return to research. Monique Blackmer (firstname.lastname@example.org) will reach out to you.
