Why do ARCHIVAL research programs require the submission of target and exposure information?

0

The Financial Review Committee (FRC), a committee of 10 scientists, meets to review GO/AR Budgets and makes funding recommendations to the ST ScI Director. The FRC needs to know the amount of data being retrieved from the archive in order to appropriately assess the reasonableness of resources being requested. STScI needs to know the number of scientific images/spectra to be analyzed, the instrument(s) used to obtain the data (i.e. WFPC2, FOC, STIS, etc.), and the number of distinct targets. The PI enters this information into the GMS using the PI Program Management screen found under the Proposal/Grant menu item. By clicking on the flag next to the instrument displayed, a list of all the instruments will be displayed. Please select as many as necessary.
