- policy, procedure
Reviewers are asked to evaluate all proposals against two criteria:
The following elements should be considered in the review for both criteria:
1. What is the potential for the proposed activity to:
a. advance knowledge and understanding within its own field or across
different fields (Intellectual Merit); and
b. benefit society or advance desired societal outcomes (Broader Impacts)?
2. To what extent do the proposed activities suggest and explore creative, original, or potentially transformative concepts?
3. Is the plan for carrying out the proposed activities well-reasoned, well-organized, and based on a sound rationale? Does the plan incorporate a mechanism to assess success?
4. How well qualified is the individual, team, or institution to conduct the proposed activities?
5. Are there adequate resources available to the PI (either at the home institution or through collaborations) to carry out the proposed activities?
Research.gov will offer the RPPR format starting January 2013, replacing NSF’s annual, interim, and final project reporting capabilities in FastLane
common portal for the research community to manage and submit annual, interim, and final reports
reduction of PI and co-PI burden through use of more innovative mechanisms to pre-populate parts of the report
Incorporation of more structured collection of the project reports data for enhanced NSF use
RPPR requirements phase is completed; RPPR design phase is underway with an anticipated first phase of rollout beginning in the summer of 2012
