V. Reporting Requirements

Annual reports, required for all projects, should address progress on data and research product sharing. The Division of Ocean Sciences requires that final reports document compliance or explain why it did not occur. In cases where the final report is due before the required data or sample submission, the PI must report submission of metadata and plans for final submission. The PI should notify the cognizant Program Officer by e-mail after final data and/or sample submission.
