In January 2021, the White House released a National Security Presidential Memorandum (NSPM-33) on United States Government-Supported Research and Development National Security Policy. NSPM-33 directs Federal agencies conducting and awarding research funds to establish policies related to use of Digital Persistent Identifiers (DPIs) for researchers’ disclosure of information during funding application and reporting workflows, including but not limited to affiliations/employment, funding support, and positions.

ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier) is the only DPI for individuals that meets the requirements stipulated in the NSPM-33 guidance. As of Spring/Summer 2022, Federal funding agencies are still in the process of creating their DPI policies. It is expected that all Federal agencies will begin to allow grant applicants to use ORCID for transferring disclosure information during the grant application process, and some agencies may choose to require that ORCID be used. In anticipation, it is recommended that research organizations take action to make sure that affiliated researchers are prepared to use ORCID to their advantage when applying for funding from Federal agencies.

This webinar will cover an overview of NSPM-33 as it applies to ORCID and recommended actions for how organizations can prepare to help researchers meet potential NSPM-33 policies related to ORCID. We will also hear a case study from the University of Florida, a comprehensive land-grant University home to 3,500 researchers and receives almost $1 billion annually in extramural funding. The University of Florida research office (UF Research) has built a custom ORCID API integration that allows researchers to connect their ORCID iD with University of Florida and have UF data written to their ORCID records. We will have plenty of time for discussion and questions at the end of the session.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this class, students will be able to:

Understand the significance of NSPM-33 as it relates to ORCID
Identify actions that can be taken to help researchers prepare for NSPM-33 policies related to ORCID
