To strengthen this connection, the SAB charter reflects the Agency's mission statement. The charter states that the first objective of the SAB is to: "advise the Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere on strategies for research, education, and application of science to operations and information services, so as to better understand and predict changes in Earth’s environment and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet the Nation’s economic, social, and environmental needs." As NOAA has adjusted its strategic plan to reflect a "One NOAA" perspective in which cross-Line Office communication is achieved through overarching goal team structures, the SAB charter aligns the advisory board to follow this cross-disciplinary perspective. 6fdb7bc8-e837-4756-8ecb-b556e227e83e Recommandations Not Available 002036b0-566e-46fc-94e4-405ebbec9dfa Make, Accept, Implement da50ff8d-0973-47e5-9160-812592de8e51 191acd2f-501b-47c1-8552-cfe2c83dc10d Recommendations Made Number NOAA Science Advisory Board Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The type of recommendation varies. For example, some are written as letters to the NOAA Administrator, making recommendations for policy changes. Others are verbatim or modified versions of recommendations from Reports written by Working Groups and presented to the Science Advisory Board for consideration. The total above represents the total of those made by the SAB in letters or reports to the agency. 476 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 9f37b9e0-1eae-4cb8-81ab-1fadceba91aa Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage NOAA Science 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 Recommendations made by the Science Advisory Board prior to July 2002 continue to be collated and assessed to determine how many have been implemented. Recommendations by the SAB since July 2002 are being tracked by the SAB staff office to ensure that the Agency has provided a response. Many of the recommendations are of the nature that will take several years and thousands of dollars to implement. The agency is not always able to implement these fully but has made an effort to at least address these partially and provide eplanations for why they are or are not yet fully implemented. 38 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 f3e2c823-ef48-49a4-8090-7a8cf7ae77af Recommendations Partially Accepted Percentage NOAA Science 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 As per the previous explanation, full implementation of many of the recommendations would require significant changes to the agency programs and budget. This is not always feasible and so a number of the recommendations are only able to be partially implemented. 25 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.)
