Foreign Financial Disclosure Report

About Foreign Financial Disclosure Report (FFDR)


In accordance with Section 10339B, Foreign Financial Support, of the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 (42 U.S.C. § 19040), each institution of higher education that receives NSF funding must disclose annually, all "current financial support, the value of which is $50,000 or more, including gifts and contracts, received directly or indirectly from a foreign source" which is associated with a foreign country of concern. See Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) Chapter VII.D.3 for additional information.

FFDRs must be prepared and submitted in Research.gov by individuals with the FFDR Preparer role. NSF has assigned the FFDR Preparer role to all individuals with the Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR) role effective May 20, 2024. Organizational Administrators can add or remove the FFDR Preparer role for individuals within their organization as appropriate.
