NSF Arctic Research Opportunities Announcement
CH2M HILL Polar Services (CPS)
Proposal Assistance Deadlines:
Arctic Research Opportunities - Friday, 1 November 2013
For further information, please click on the "Proposal Assistance" link
Researchers planning to include a support letter and estimate for
logistics support from CH2M HILL Polar Services (CPS) in their proposals
under the current National Science Foundation (NSF) Arctic Research
Opportunities Program Announcement are asked to provide CPS with a
detailed support request by no later than Friday, 1 November 2013. Early
submissions are strongly encouraged.
As described in the section entitled 'Proposals Involving Arctic Field
Work' (under 'Proposal Preparation Instructions'), NSF will consider the
full cost of supporting a project, including logistics, prior to making
recommendations. To access the solicitation, search for document number
'10-597' at: http://www.nsf.gov/publications/ods/.
Depending on the complexity of the proposed fieldwork, it generally
takes between four and six weeks to develop an estimate; however, given
the high volume of estimates, the ARO deadline delay, and the
Thanksgiving holiday, this year CPS will need five weeks to develop an
estimate and at least six to seven weeks for more complicated estimates.
CPS will be unable to fulfill proposal estimate requests received after
Friday, 1 November 2013 for the Arctic solicitation.
Please note the NSF deadline for proposals to the Arctic Research
Opportunities Program Announcement: Friday, 6 December 2013.
Researchers should submit field plans and support requirements to CPS
Science Planning Manager Naomi Whitty at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the logistics contractor for NSF, CPS annually provides
transportation, communications, infrastructure, and field camp support
to over 150 projects throughout the Arctic and near-Arctic.
