The Current and Pending Support document (NSF, NASA, DOE, DOD, USDA) or Other Support document (NIH and other PHS agencies) is a list of current and pending grant support of all key personnel. Sponsors use this section to assess the capacity of the individual to carry out the research as proposed, and to review potential overlap/duplication with the proposed project. Agencies require information on all current and pending support for ongoing projects and proposals.
