FastLane at Dartmouth College

Welcome to Dartmouth College's implementation of the National Science Foundation's FastLane System, an experimental program utilizing advanced information technology to explore methods to re-design and streamline the way NSF does business with the research and education communities.

The specific goal of FastLane is to experiment with ways to use the World Wide Web to facilitate business transactions and exchange of information between the National Science Foundation and its client community including researchers, reviewers, research administrators, and others doing business with NSF. There are many functions included in the FastLane project, and several functions are specific to Principal Investigators (PI's).

The purpose of this page is to help you begin utilizing the resources available under FastLane. If you are already familiar with FastLane, and have your Personal Identification Number (PIN), then click here to go directly to FastLane. Otherwise, you will need to obtain a PIN number.

The Office of Sponsored Projects is Presently Providing Full Support for the Following FastLane Services

  1. Registering faculty to use the FastLane system.
  2. Assistance with using FastLane to monitor the status of NSF proposals.

Support for Proposal Submission

Please contact the FastLane Administrator in the Office of Sponsored Projects for more information about this option.

Registering to Use FastLane

Most FastLane function require the use of a PIN number to protect the privacy of each principal investigator. All Dartmouth College faculty who have an active NSF award, or who have submitted a proposal to NSF within the last two years, have been pre-loaded into the FastLane database. Faculty who are already in the FastLane database need only to initialize their PIN number to begin using FastLane.

To Initialize a PIN Number

  1. Contact the FastLane Administrator in the Office of Sponsored Projects by phone or through electronic mail.

    E-mail
    : Sponsored.Projects@Dartmouth.edu
    Phone: (603) 646-3977

    Your PIN number can, in most cases, be activated the same day. The PIN may be requested via phone call or via email, but for security reasons the request must come directly from the researcher. Requests via graduate students or administrative staff cannot be honored. Once a PIN number is assigned, the researcher may share it with departmental staff or others in his or her laboratory; this decision is left to the discretion of the individual researcher.
  2. When you call, be prepared to provide either your social security number or an alternative 4 digit number or letters.
  3. You will be notified, usually within a day, that you can begin using the FastLane system.
