Impact of Proposal and Award Management Mechanisms (IPAMM) Working Group

Discussions with

the Advisory Committees

ipamm working group
IPAMM Working Group
  • Charge:
    • Identify best practices to achieve an appropriate balance between proposal success rates, award sizes and award duration
    • Emphasis on individual, investigator-initiated grants.
  • Members from across NSF: EHR, R&RAs, OISE, OPP, and BFA
    • Program Directors and Division Directors
    • Rotators and Permanent Staff
what is the issue
What Is the Issue?
  • Success rate for research proposals was 20% in FY05, down from 30% in FY00
  • Potential impact on merit review
    • Increased workload on reviewer community
    • Increased workload on NSF staff
  • Potential loss of capacity
what is the likelihood that a given proposal will be funded
What is the likelihood that a given proposal will be funded?
  • Research proposal success rates dropped from 30% in FY 2000 to 20% in FY 2005, leveled off in FY 2006 (21%)
  • Coincided with:
    • 47% increase in proposal submissions (began in FY 2000, peaked in FY 2004, leveled off in FY 2005 and 2006)
    • 41% increase in average award size
    • 39% increase in median award size
  • Research proposal success rates varied across the R&RA directorates, however all experienced declines

Decrease in proposal success rates coincides with increases in

proposal submissions and average award size/duration

observations
Observations
  • # of PIs submitting to NSF increased from FY 2000-2005
    • 29% increase in first-time submitters
    • 38% increase overall
  • 30% increase in # proposals PIs submit to gain a single award
    • 1998-2000: 1.7 per PI
    • 2003-2005: 2.2 per PI
potential drivers affecting proposal submissions
Potential Drivers Affecting Proposal Submissions
  • Increased use of solicitations with specific research foci
  • Limits on submissions in specific cases
  • Congress authorizes doubling the NSF budget (2002, 2007?)
  • NSF budgets decrease or are flat (2004-2005)
  • NSB calls for increased award size and duration
  • Potential effect of PI fatigue
next steps
Next steps
  • Case studies of various practices related to proposal submissions
  • Additional data analyses
  • Obtain external input
    • Focus groups with new rotators
    • Applicant Survey to assess external drivers
    • Visits with Advisory Committees
