Linking logistics, infrastructure, and research proposals: improving the planning process and the metrics for success

OPP Office Advisory Committee

May 18, 2011


Central transantarctic mountains ctam camp
Central Transantarctic Mountains (CTAM) Camp improving the planning process and the metrics for success

  • Supported 17 projects and more than 100 scientists

  • Constructed in only 28 days; benefit of the Field Camp Standardization Plan

  • Open for science 3 December – 26 January


Icecube
IceCube improving the planning process and the metrics for success

  • Fully operational 86-string neutrino detector

  • Exceeded original scientific expectations for detector size


Optimization
Optimization improving the planning process and the metrics for success

  • Field Camp Standardization Plan

  • Code waiver process

  • Simplified Operational Requirements Worksheet

  • SIP inventory requests feed into contractor databases for efficient allocations


Planning improvements
Planning Improvements improving the planning process and the metrics for success

  • AIL working with ANT to complete in-depth support reviews on large projects in advance of successful scientific review

  • Contractor working with PIs on feasibility studies in advance of proposal submission

  • AIL & Contractor staff available to consult; need to get the word out


Process improvements
Process Improvements improving the planning process and the metrics for success

  • Support Information Package needs a refresh

    • Match worksheet structure and inventory to current practice

  • Science outbrief process needs to be more efficient


Current metrics
Current Metrics improving the planning process and the metrics for success

  • Antarctic Support Contractor measures performance in aggregate

  • ASC does not track performance specific to each science project

  • NSF has GPRA metrics to track productive science days


Oac assistance
OAC Assistance improving the planning process and the metrics for success

  • Suggestions for how to define project success criteria with respect to contractor support

    • What support is most important to each project?

    • How do we measure that?

  • Suggestions for how best to receive feedback on support

    • On-ice or off?

    • Direct to NSF rather than through contractor?
