The Foundation`s Grants and Agreements (DGA) department and the Contract, Policy and Supervisory Department (CPO) are responsible for planning, tendering, issuing negotiations and managing NF aid bonuses and other agency assistance agreements. The General Counsel office assists the DGA and the CPO on legal issues related to these agreements, NSF guidelines and procedures, as well as applicable federal law, directives and procedures. The Director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Science Board have asked the National Academy of Public Administration (Academy) to verify the NSF`s use of Cooperation Agreements (CAs) to support the development, construction, commissioning and future operation of leading research organizations. In particular, the Academy was asked: scholarships, contracts and cooperation of resources available on this website: Overall, the Panel of the Academy felt that the CAS are the appropriate mechanism to support the development of large research organizations. The mechanism is designed specifically to allow substantial participation by the federal authority. The main success factor for this type of project is the discipline of project management – and the rigour of audit processes – as well as the ability and ability of qualified individuals to fulfill and follow project management responsibilities. The analysis of the panel comparison agencies provides lessons and identifies practices that can be taken up by the NSF. In addition, the group identified issues related to the governance of NFs and NSBs, both in terms of structure and practices, and presented a number of proposals to strengthen agency management practices. The body`s recommendations are intended to support the NSF and NSB`s commitment to improving core practices and the NSF`s primary objective of ensuring the integrity of the program and good governance of key research organizations.
