AFOSR/IO No-Cost Extension (NCE) Policy
We require prior written approval to extend the period of performance, without additional funds, beyond the expiration date of the grant. We only grant no-cost extensions when they are truly warranted and properly documented.

AFOSR uses this information to evaluate the business aspects of your request. In no event will the period of performance be extended merely for the purpose of using unobligated balances. PIs should make every effort to ensure work is completed on time. If the PI and the business office deem a no-cost extension is truly warranted, the PI must submit the request to the Program Officer and Grants Officer for initial review and a recommendation.
