The National Science Board's draft Cost Sharing Report entitled, "Investing in the Future: NSF Cost Sharing Policies for a Robust Federal Research Enterprise" is now available on the NSF website at: http://www.nsf.gov/nsb/publications/2009/cs_draft_report.pdf. This report is the second of two focused on NSF cost sharing policy released by the Board following a Congressional directive in the 2007 America COMPETES Act.
Given the importance of this issue to the research enterprise, I encourage you to review this report and provide input in order that all viewpoints may be considered. Comments should be submitted by Monday, February 16, 2009 to Jennifer Richards, Executive Secretary, Task Force on Cost Sharing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions, contact Ms. Richards at (703) 292-7000.
