NSF proposals must include a supplementary document of no more than two pages describing how the proposal will conform to the NSF policy on the dissemination and sharing of research needs. For the most up-to-date information, see the NSF's page on Preparing Your Data Management Plan.
Some NSF directorates, offices, divisions, and programs provide more specific guidance on the content of data management plans, including Biological Sciences, Computer and Information Sciences and Engineering, and Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences. General guidance can be found in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide.
