Mid-year project updates are requested by the LDRD Program from the lead scientists. The project update provides a project’s status,
any mid-year re-direction that requires project re-planning
and budget modifications, and an explanation of any project re-plan.
Check the LDRD calendar for exact due dates.
The project update provides the LDRD Program with a brief update including:
- Project Status: Provide a summary of scientific or technical progress
this past quarter, and include any requests for a project extension. Only projects that are successfully meeting their project proposal milestones are eligible to compete for future LDRD funds.
- Project Plan: Provide a brief
explanation for the remainder of the year. If there is a
project re-plan provide an explanation for the re-plan focusing on changes from the proposal, future milestones, and anticipated results.
- Budget: Provide budget update
for the remainder of the current fiscal year, and
confirmation of the budget requested in your LDRD
proposal for the following fiscal year, where
