Charge to the Panel
The objective of the review is to assess the quality and
effectiveness of NCAR’s performance as managers of an NSF
and Division of Atmospheric Science funded Federally
Funded Research and Development Center.

In considering this objective, the panel may examine the following
questions:
1)
Has NCAR management facilitated a strategic partnership with the NSF?
2)
Has NCAR demonstrated clear leadership in science and management,
and an effective process for cultivating a long-term vision, mission and
strategy?
3)
Has NCAR developed a robust process for planning and review that
engages the community?
4)
Has NCAR been effective in promoting and sustaining cross-divisional and
interdisciplinary programs?
5)
Has NCAR established productive national and international scientific
links with Federal agencies, international institutions, NGOs, and the
global research community
6)
Has NCAR encouraged and facilitated the participation of
underrepresented groups (gender, ethnicity, disability, etc.)?
