The National Science Foundation (NSF) will realign four program offices

outcomes for science and engineering, while enhancing NSF's operational
agility. The proposed organizational changes include:

- The Office of Cyberinfrastructure becoming a division within the
Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering.
- The Office of Polar Programs becoming a division within the
Directorate for Geosciences.
- The Office of International Science and Engineering merging with
the Office of Integrative Activities, and the combined unit becoming
the Office of International and Integrative Activities.

These realignments will not result in mission, budgetary, or staffing
changes apart from senior leadership roles in the expanded
organizations. Pending fulfillment of any statutory or other
obligations, the transition to the realigned organization would begin
Monday, 1 October 2012.
