Director's Review

by Mark Adams last modified May 02, 2014 by Joan Wrobel

The Director's Review is a meeting held each semester involving the NRAO Director, the Chief Scientist, the Assistant Directors for New Mexico operations and Green Bank operations, the Assistant Director for Science Support and Research, and NRAO staff relevant to the time allocation process and telescope scheduling. The proposal evaluation and time allocation process is reviewed to ensure that all relevant NRAO policies and procedures have been followed, resulting in fair and transparent allocation of telescope time. The Director's Review may result in adjustments to priorities in response to programmatic concerns. The approved rank-ordered lists are  then sent to the sites for scheduling and the users are notified of the final disposition of their proposals.
