The National Science Foundation's Engineering Research Center (ERC) program provides multiyear (up to ten years) support to ERCs as continuing awards that are among the largest awarded by NSF. Since the duration and size of these awards are extensive, it is necessary for NSF to ensure that its substantial investment is spent appropriately, that each of the centers meets the goals stated in its own strategic plan, and that each Center's activities satisfy the goals and objectives of the ERC program. To enable effective oversight of its investment, NSF requires that each currently funded Center submit an annual progress report that describes all activities of the Center.
