I wanted to let you know in case you were preparing a proposal with the
expectation of submitting it in the coming Spring. In FY05 you were able
to submit your Digital Government proposals to the IIS Division- wide call for
proposals in April. This call has now been archive - please see:

If you go to this URL, you'll see the following notice:
Public Comment: NSF is not accepting proposals under the Information and
Intelligent Systems solicitation, NSF 05-551 in 2006 or future years. A new
solicitation is currently under development that will clarify and better define the
mapping of our program areas to the IIS organizational structure. We expect the
new solicitation will have Fall 2006 deadline dates.

The new solicitation will be posted at least 90 days prior to the deadline dates.
We had originally expected to accept FY06 IIS proposals
in about the same timeframe as in 05 - i.e. April-May 2006.
As you can see, though, this is now pushed out about 6 months.

DG Research continues to help e-Rulemaking

Writing software to help computers identify the unique, individual comments that have more value to regulators.

Regulators must work out the real-life details of the laws that have been passed. For those whose mandate is implementation, rather than legislation, the calculation is never as simple as counting up how many yeses vs. how many nos.
