How do I prepare and submit the current and pending support information to NSF?

NSF requires for the current and pending support information of all Senior Personnel to be submitted at the time of proposal. This section of the proposal calls for required information on all current and pending support for ongoing projects and proposals, including this project, and any subsequent funding in the case of continuing grants.
 
All current project support from whatever source (e.g., Federal, State, local or foreign government agencies, public or private foundations, industrial or other commercial organizations, or internal funds allocated toward specific projects) must be listed. The proposed project and all other projects or activities requiring a portion of time of the PI and other senior personnel must be included, even if they receive no salary support from the project(s).  The total award amount for the entire award period covered (including indirect costs) must be shown as well as the number of person-months per year to be devoted to the project, regardless of source of support. Similar information must be provided for all proposals already submitted or submitted concurrently to other possible sponsors, including NSF. Concurrent submission of a proposal to other organizations will not prejudice its review. (NSF PAPPG 18-1)
 
The current and pending support information is submitted with the other proposal documents via NSF's electronic portal FastLane or Research.gov.  A sample current and pending support document is available here
 
Here is an NSF current and pending support template to aid you in preparing this section of the proposal. The current and pending support at Stanford for any given Principal Investigator gets generated via the Current and Pending Report in SeRA. Use the information in that report and plug it into the template to comply with NSF's required format. Remember that SeRA may not list all the sources of funding that NSF requires, including foreign sources of funding in a PI's research project. 
 
The current and pending support pages for all senior personnel may no longer be grouped together and uploaded in a single PDF file associated with the PI. Each individual’s current and pending support must be uploaded as a single PDF file or inserted as text associated with that individual. For the latest information on NSF's requirements on the current and pending support pages, please see the latest NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide.
