Manufacturing USA Institute Evaluation: Renewal Process and Performance Standards
Robert G. Rudnitsky, Kelley Rogers
The Manufacturing USA Program's 2019 reauthorization allows the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to renew Manufacturing USA institute support, subject to a "rigorous merit review." Following an initial five to seven-year cooperative agreement in which federal support must be cost-matched by at least a 1:1 match of non-federal co-investment over the performance period of the award, NIST-funded institutes are now eligible to apply for renewal of their support. This document describes the institute renewal process, with a focus on the performance standards for the merit review.
