Requested by Congress in both P.L. 107-368 and P.L. 108-7, this new report from the National Academies examines how the National Science Foundation prioritizes competing proposals for the construction and operation of large research facilities, and recommends ways to improve this process.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 14, 2003 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
