Grantee Reporting Requirements for Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSECs)

OMB 3145-0230

OMB 3145-0230

The NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) program provides significant support ($1 – $4 million / year) for research, education, and infrastructure through cooperative agreements with a renewable term of 6 years. Because of the duration and size of these awards, it is necessary for the NSF to ensure that its substantial investment is spent appropriately, that each of the centers meets the goals stated in its strategic plan, and that each center's activities satisfy the goals and objectives of the MRSEC program. The MRSEC program currently funds a total of 22 Centers-12 were funded in FY08, and 10 FY11. For effective oversight of these substantial investments, the NSF requires that each currently funded Center submit an annual progress report that describes all activities of the Center; these reports begin in the first year of operation. Each Center is expected to submit a final report at the end of the award. Data contained in these reports are also submitted to a website managed by a contractor for NSF. Electronic submission facilitates program-wide data analysis.
