Planning Third Party Logistics support in your proposal
In addition to the logistics support provided by Battelle ARO, RSL provides support via other third-party providers such as the Ice Drilling Program (IDP), Toolik Field Station (TFS) and UNAVCO. RSL engages these third-party providers through NSF subcontracts, grants, and cooperative agreements. In many cases, using one of the third-party providers reduces the overall logistics costs to a proposal due to resource sharing and economies of scale. For the full list of third-party providers, visit the Arctic Research Support and Logistics Program (RSL) website.
