NM SMART Grid Center team members have access to High Performance Computing resources at New Mexico State University. For more information and to request access, visit the NMSU ICT webpage or contact

The NM SMART Grid Center Data Management Plan describes data types, data and metadata standards, policies for access and sharing, policies for re-use and redistribution, and plans for archiving and preservation.

For more information about data management and available resources, contact the University of New Mexico Libraries' Research Data Services at

In order to ensure accurate records and reporting, the State Office should be advised of all budget revisions of NM EPSCoR SMART Grid Center funds. The Associate Director and Project Administrator will review all revision requests for allowability, mathematical correctness, and programmatic alignment.

In order to ensure alignment across institutional records, requests should be routed through the proper institutional authority. Submit the request through your appropriate Office of Sponsored Projects/Post-award authority by emailing it to NM EPSCoR Project Administrator Andra Kiscaden and copy Interim Associate Director Selena Connealy at

For audit purposes, the budget modification request should include a detailed justification. Budget modification requests should clearly state:

  • The amount of funds that are proposed to be increased/decreased in each budget category;
  • How the modification will benefit the award;
  • Why the expense was not anticipated in the original proposal;
  • If the modification will result in a change in scope of the project.

Note you may be asked to provide additional documentation or justification.

Some requests may require prior NSF approval. In the event that prior approval is required, the State Office will serve as the contact point with NSF. Partner institutions should not contact NSF directly with budget modification requests. Warning: NSF budget revision requests generally take at least three months to approve.

Some requests may also require a modification to an institution’s subaward agreement. The State Office will serve as the liaison between the partner institution and the University of New Mexico Office of Sponsored Projects to facilitate any such modifications.
