Notice to Contractors, Vendors, and Recipients of Grants and Cooperative Agreements Regarding Status of NIST Campus

In support of guidance on the COVID-19 outbreak from Federal, State and local health authorities and the Office of Management and Budget, NIST is now operating with limited access to its Gaithersburg, Maryland, and Boulder, Colorado, campuses. Limited access means that the campus is open to conduct mission-critical functions only.

Vendors and award recipients should contact their Contracting or Grants Officer with any questions concerning work under their contract/agreement.

If access to NIST campuses is not required, most work under active contracts and grants may continue.

Any changes to the grants and cooperative agreements compliance requirements issued by OMB will be disseminated appropriately by the NIST Grants Office.
