Environmental Compliance and Permitting and Lessons Learned
Large facility awardees must often obtain permits. NSF must also meet its environmental compliance responsibilities. Occasionally, NSF and its awardees encounter challenges in meeting their respective obligations, which can result in schedule delays and increased costs. This discussion highlighted recent challenges from DKIST and NEON and present strategies for effective and efficient risk mitigation.
Presented on May 26th at the 2016 Large Facilities Workshop.
