  • Description:
    "Research results transitioned to applications are one of the primary outputs from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) science. NOAA's Line Offices have traditionally been responsible for ensuring the quality and progress of transitions. However, there has been no systematic, NOAA-wide monitoring of projects, and often transitions have been dealt with individually on an ad hoc basis. As a result, NOAA had not developed a comprehensive performance metric for its transitions. In response to this need, in Fiscal Year (FY) 2009, NOAA's Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) decided to develop a pilot performance measure focused on transitions between OAR and NOAA's National Weather Service. The metric was developed as part of a new suite of performance measures included under the Government Performance and Results Act. This pilot performance measure and project monitoring associated with it, were implemented on a trial basis from FY 2008 through FY 2011. This technical memorandum documents the development process, challenges, assumptions, results, and lessons learned from the evaluation of this measure"--Abstract.
