10.6 Proposal SchedulingAfter Technical Review, observations determined to be feasible are scheduled for execution. The scheduling process attempts to optimize the overall HST efficiency. STScI will not contemplate requests to advance or postpone the scheduling of individual programs based on other considerations, with the possible exception of compelling scientific arguments.Proposers should be aware that after acceptance of a proposal, the actual execution of the observations may in some cases prove impossible. Possible reasons include:
The STScI Director reserves the right to disallow at any time any or all observations of an approved program if it is demonstrated that incorrect or incomplete information was provided in the Phase I proposal that may have significantly influenced the approval recommendation by the review panels or the TAC.
