The Advisory Board contributes to the NOAA goal, “Protect, restore, and manage the use of coastal and ocean resources through ecosystem-based management,” by providing advice and oversight in several NOAA core capabilities including “Environmental Literacy, Outreach, and Education,” and “Sound, Reliable State of the Art Research.” f67e4ae1-740c-4883-907b-3214442eae12 Recommandations Not Available 7751ff62-78f0-4255-9131-ef27350bac77 Make, Accept, Implement 86a31bf5-03a5-46eb-af99-3729d891393f 01106f84-4a03-4fa5-b9ff-9b3d45e303da Recommendations Made Number National Sea Grant Advisory Board Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The Sea Grant Advisory Board was formed in 1976. Over 30+ years, the Advisory Board has provided advice and recommendations about the National Sea Grant Program through multiple forms, including recommendations on individual projects (during the 1990's), on individual programs through the Program Assessment process, and on the functioning of thematic aspects of the broader Program. The 1965 number given assumes an average rate of 50 recommendations per year, based on a rate (over the 10 years of the PAT process up to 2006) of approximately 50 PAT recommendations, and 10 program recommendations per year. Since the recommendations performance measure has only been formally requested since 2003, we are unable to provide a more accurate total for the 30+ year life of this committee. In FY11, the National Sea Grant College Program received 17 recommendations - 16 recommendations for state programs during the Site Reviews and one recommendation from the Allocation Subcommittee.In FY10, the National Sea Grant Program replaced the PAT system with the new Planning, Implementation and Evaluation (PIE) system. Once every four years beginning in 2010, a site review team (SRT) will visit each Sea Grant program. Each SRT will be chaired by the NSGO program officer and co-chaired by a member of the Advisory Board with a Sea Grant Director as a review team member. Additional members of the teams may be drawn from the Advisory Board and/oroutside experts as needed. The SRT will meet with the program management team, advisory committees, and university administration to review and discuss broad issues related to three of the four evaluation components: 1) program management and organization; 2) stakeholder engagement; and 3) collaborative network activities. During the first year, Board members participated in 13 SRT and provided 26 recommendations through the PIE system.In FY 09, we received 34 new recommendations. In 2008, the Advisory Board focused on the Fisheries Extension Program (6 recommendations), National Office Staffing (1 recommendation), and the COPE (1 recommendation). 1965 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 94001c4f-f0e9-49c5-8398-a9a3d87e4f1f Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage National Sea Grant Advisory Board Department of Commerce For a variety of its own reasons not applicable to the Committee, the agency may implement all/most of the recommendations, but few times recommendations are not implemented. n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The FY11 Board recommendations from the Site Review Teams have only begun to be implemented by the programs. FY10 recommendations from the Site Review Teams will continue to be implemented as strategic planning and funding allows. The recommendations in the FY09 futures committee report are providing new thinking for the future of Sea Grant, but some recommendations are very long-term in nature and although we will work toward implementation, full implementation will not be realizable until well into the future. 25 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 448a1e23-332c-4f31-9de4-913d63f9d767 Recommendations Partially Accepted Percentage National Sea Grant Advisory Board Department of Commerce There are sometimes a few proposals which were not funded in their entirety, those few being scaled back from their original level of requested funding (allowable under the program). n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 Recommendations from the Advisory Board are advisory in nature, and the majority are implemented; however, the National Sea Grant Office and Individual Programs are not required to implement Advisory Board recommendations if they do not agree with them and/or have the current resources to do so. The Board's overarching recommendation regarding the future of Sea Grant is expected to be partially implemented in the short term. 75 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2013-07-09 http://explore.data.gov/resource/datasets/c5i3-bb9j Gannon (J.)
