Proposal Confidentiality

by Gustaaf Van Moorsel last modified Jun 26, 2018 by Dana Balser

To create a valid proposal, you must complete every section. You may save partially completed proposals and exit the tool at any time.  Information submitted as part of proposals that are rejected or not observed will remain confidential.

For successful proposals, the name of the Principal Investigator, proposal ID, title, hours awarded and proposal type (regular, triggered, Directors Discretionary Time...) are made public in the relevant observatory Science Program, and this information plus the list of Co-Investigators and the Abstract is made available from the Proposal Finder Tool (PFT) when data are archived. When a DDT/TOO proposal is approved and observed the corresponding information is made public.

Additional proposal metadata (such as source positions, observation frequencies, and integration times) are available publicly from the NRAO archive once data for a proposal has been collected.
