COV Reports and Annual Updates

OVERVIEW

NSF relies on the judgment of external experts to maintain high standards of program management, to provide advice for continuous improvement of NSF performance, and to ensure openness to the research and education community served by the Foundation. Committee of Visitors (COV) reviews provide NSF with external expert judgments in two areas:

  1. assessments of the quality and integrity of program operations and program-level technical and managerial matters pertaining to proposal decisions; and
  2. comments on how the outputs and outcomes generated by awardees have contributed to the attainment of NSF's mission and strategic outcome goals.

COV reviews are conducted at regular intervals of approximately three years for programs and offices that recommend or award grants, cooperative agreements, and/or contracts and whose main focus is the conduct or support of NSF research and education in science and engineering.

Each division or office prepares an annual update describing key actions that have been taken to implement the recommendations of the previous COV report. These reports and updates are shown below.
For additional information on the COV process please see http://www.nsf.gov/od/oia/activities/cov/
