An Update on the LFM, Yasky | 2019

Update on the LFM

The updated “Large Facilities Manual (LFM)” under the new title “Major Facilities Guide (MFG)” is scheduled to be in effect in Fall 2019. This revision adds a section for guidance on mid-scale research infrastructure projects; updates sections related to NSF policy on research infrastructure, roles and responsibilities for NSF staff, divestment stage, earned value management, cybersecurity, and property management; and clarifies cost estimating requirements including the construction stage total project costs and NSF policy on contingency and reporting requirements. This session was a brief presentation of the changes and gave participants the opportunity to ask questions regarding these changes.

 

Presented on April 2nd at the 2019 Large Facilities Workshop.
