Broader Impacts Plan Checklist

This checklist was developed from the NABI Guiding Principles document as a quick assessment to help you gage the completeness of your BI Plan.

You can use this checklist to check off the items you have addressed in your plan. Then, review the items you have not addressed, and consider adding text to your proposal to address them.

1) Does the BI project address one/more of the target outcomes for BI activities outlined by NSF (check all that apply)
2) What is the potential for the proposed activity to benefit society and contribute to achievement of specific desired societal outcomes?


BI Project Benefits to Society

3) To what extent do the proposed activities suggest and explore creative, original, or potentially transformative concepts?

Potential to be Transformative

4) Is the plan for carrying out the proposed activities well-reasoned, well organized, and based on a sound rationale? Does the plan incorporate a mechanism to assess success?
