NSF supports revisionary systematic projects on the individual
investigator level, in its ordinary competitions, especially (but not
only) via the REVSYS category of proposals
on the level of small groups of investigators via the PEET program, which
specifically supports monographic research
and on the level of larger groups of investigators, via the Planetary
Biodiversity Inventories program
In other words, if there is a problem here, I don't think it lies with NSF.
