Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The SES program supports research on decision making related to design, planning, and operation of commercial, nonprofit, and institutional service enterprises with the goal of improving their overall effectiveness and cost reduction. Research is supported that is both grounded in an interesting and relevant application and requires the development of novel analytical and computational methodologies that may be of broader interest. Topics of interest include healthcare operations and medical decision making; policies and incentives in healthcare, energy, and other public service institutions; financial engineering and risk management; transportation and humanitarian logistics; and national security. Of particular interest are methods that incorporate increasingly rich and diverse sources of data and information to support decision making.
