XMM-Newton Guest Observer Facility


XMM-Newton Guest Observer Program Summary of Research

NASA and the federal government have specific requirements for the reporting of results obtained by the recipients of grant funds. The documentment Grant and Cooperative Agreement Handbook details much of this information while Exhibit G of Section A lists the specific reporting requirements. (Exhibit G is appended to the grant award notification letter.)

XMM-Newton GOs receiving NASA grants are required to file a Summary of Research Report detailing their supported activities within 90 days of the conclusion of the grant period. The report should list the objectives of the research and the achieved goals, including the dissemination of the results (i.e., papers published on the subject). The report should be submitted by the budget Principal Investigator, and should include the activities of any subgrant recipients. If the proposed research was not feasible, explain why not.

A standard form for the Report is available in ps, pdf, and annotated LaTex formats.

NOTE: The proposal number that is requested at the top right of the form is that of the original science proposal. This is the six-digit number assigned by ESA.

The Report should be mailed to the following: Technical Officer (TO), Center for Aerospace Information (CASI), Administrative Grant Officer (AGO), and NASA Grant Officer (GO). The addresses for the AGO and GO can be found in the grant award notification information. For the TO and CASI, use the following addresses. The Grant Number (formerly a NAG number) can also be found in the grant package.
