If you have a research suggestion that you think merits consideration in the 2015 RFP, please complete the RFP input form by July 15 to ensure consideration.
Each spring, NPRB staff begins developing research priorities for the upcoming year's request for proposals (RFP). Working closely with NPRB's science panel, potential reseach priority topics are drafted for the advisory panel and board to review in the fall.
In an effort to avoid duplictaing other research activities, NPRB has formal agreements with other agencies to jointly identify time-sensitive science, management and monitoring needs. NPRB draws not only upon the research needs outlined in the 2005 NPRB Science Plan and an assessment of completed, current and planned projects, but also looks to new information gathered at science meetings and from current scientific literature. NPRB considers research priorities released by various agencies/institutions and solicits input from organizaions and individuals alike. If you have a research suggestion that you think merits consideration in the 2015 RFP, please complete the RFP input form by July 15 to ensure consideration.
