A
Framework for the Review of Research Programs of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health*

This is the second version of a document prepared by the National Academies Committee for the Review of NIOSH Research Programs1 also referred to as the Framework Committee. This document is not a formal report of the National Academies—rather, it is a framework proposed for use by multiple National Academies evaluation committees to review up to 15 National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) research programs. It is a working document subject to modification by the Framework Committee on the basis of responses received from evaluation-committee members, NIOSH, stakeholders, and the general public during the course of the assessments.
