Greenland Process Steps

Steps for executing your field season

 

STEP ONE:
PROPOSAL AND PRE-AWARD

During this process, pIease work with Battelle ARO to develop a proposed logistics plan and review the Suggested Reading by NSF. The PI should also investigate all costs, including permitting and outreach, that need to be included in their proposal submission. Additional information can be found on our Proposal Estimate Support page.
 

STEP TWO:
NEW FUNDED AWARDS

Battelle ARO securely saves your project record in our system. Records outline your science objectives, along with logistics plans for your fieldwork. If your proposal is recommended for award, the PI reviews the record and the project summary is provided to NSF.
 

STEP THREE:
PRE-FIELDWORK PLANNING

There are several steps in planning for a successful field season. Teams members should sign up for all applicable Field safety training, acquire all needed permits, review interaction plans and work with your assigned Project Manager to finalize all planning to safely and efficiently execute your fieldwork.
 

STEP FOUR:
EXECUTE FIELDWORK

Following the plan developed at the pre-fieldwork planning stage, PIs conduct fieldwork according to the planned scope and budget. Communicate any changes or deviations to your Project Manager and they will determine next steps.
 

STEP FIVE:
INCIDENT REPORTING AND LESSONS LEARN

Reporting incidents and near misses is integral to NSF's risk management program. Lessons learned are considered anonymously to make improvements in program safety. Report incidents to your Project Manager, via the Gateway, or by contacting NSF directly.
