The President’s Advisory Committee on University Relations (PACUR) contributed in the development of a set of criteria applied to the submittal of non-core proposals by NCAR. A subcommittee of the PACUR was appointed in April 1993 to review NCAR's non-NSF proposals and to determine if the proposals were adhering to the criteria. Beginning in December 1995 UCP non-core proposals were also included in this review. This review process is important for two reasons: it is an assurance to the universities that there is no unfair competition and it serves as a mechanism to encourage collaboration between NCAR and UCP and the university community. The procedure that the subcomittee follows for reviewing NCAR and UOP proposals can be found here.
