Cost Estimating for NSF Facility Operations – Reasonable Application of GAO Good Practices

The GAO Cost Estimating and Assessment Guide includes estimating good practices for the entire facility life cycle (Development through Divestment). Using community input, this session explored which of the twelve steps (or practices) of a high quality cost estimate are most relevant to the Operations Stage and  how NSF can further clarify expectations for proposal submission in Section 4.2 of the LFM.
