Our independent evaluation contractor, Abt, closed the PI and Reviewer surveys in mid-November.
At present, they are working on analyzing the survey results. These results will be brought together with analyses of stakeholder interviews and programmatic (proposal, award, and review process) data that Abt has already completed to produce a full evaluation.
We are expecting the final report to be delivered to NSF by the end of February, 2017. We are looking forward to sharing the results with you as we are able.
And, to the many of you who were contacted by Abt to take part in the survey, thank you for your time and participation.
