IMPORTANT - CPCESU No Cost Time Extensions - New Policy

Dear CPCESU Partners, Sponsored Projects/Grants Folks, IMR Superintendents and CPCESU Project ATRs, 

The National Park Service Intermountain Regional Contracting and Financial Assistance Office just informed us that any no-cost extension requests that are submitted AFTER the project end date will not be approved. It is very important that you inform your principal investigators of this fact right away. Since I have at least 400 active agreements, it is more efficient if you inform researchers at your institution of this new policy being instituted by our regional office.  We will continue to review and approve no cost extensions that come in before the end date. The OMB circulars that implement CFR regulations, requires modifications to occur no later than 30 days before the project end, so it is quite possible that NCE's received less than 30 days before the project end date will not be accepted.

Please feel free to call or write if you have any questions.
