This official is consulted on all policy matters involving facilities, including responses to inquiries made by NSF management, the NSF Office of Inspector General, the Office of Management and Budget, and Congress. The position is supported by permanent NSF staff with a mix of skills, qualifications, and extensive experience in project management, planning and budgeting, cost analysis, and oversight. NSF refers to this new position as the “deputy for large facility projects,” nomenclature that the committee respects throughout the rest of this report.
