The full document, including amendments, can be accessed under Solicitations at the NSPIRES web site.

Archiving Considerations

While no Discovery DAP supported data is archived with the Ring-Moon Systems Node, this node may be a suitable site for archiving data produced as a result of analysis of Kepler/K2 solar system observations. If you think this may be the case for data you intend to produce, early in your proposal development contact us..

On July 26, 2016 a change was made to the wording in section C.1 of ROSES 2016 which affects DDAP proposals: "Proposers intending to archive data or products in the PDS must obtain and include confirmation, in the form of a letter of support from the appropriate Discipline Node, that the PDS is willing to accept their submission."
