This plan is required as part of the budget proposal submission.Program management is a level above the management of individual projects. The person managing the program should be clearly identified, and their level of oversight should be clearly described. The program management plan should include:
• Descriptions of the roles and time commitments of personnel (name where possible) and how those roles might change throughout the project. If graduate students are contributing to the project, it should be made clear who is mentoring them.
• Clearly identify the responsibilities of U.S. and foreign investigators. Budgets for U.S. investigators should be within the scope of the labor proposed for those investigators. Foreign teams need to contribute a proportionate amount to the project (including publications).
