BI Plan Key Questions

Take a moment to re-read your BI Plan and ask yourself these important questions:

  1. Does the BI project address one/more of the target outcomes for BI activities outlined by NSF?
  2. What is the potential for the proposed activity to benefit society and contribute to achievement of specific desired societal outcomes?
  3. To what extent do the proposed activities suggest and explore creative, original, or potentially transformative concepts?
  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?
  5. How well qualified is the individual, team, or institution to conduct the proposed activities?

Good Luck!
