GLIN==> Public Notice - Federal Evaluation of Wisconsin Sea Grant Program

Federal Review of Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program


During May 30-June 2, 2006, the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program will undergo a performance evaluation and management review by a federal Program Assessment Team (PAT).

The purpose of the PAT evaluation is to (1) assess program accomplishments and management quality, and (2) make recommendations for improving the program’s overall productivity and effectiveness. Future program evaluation and merit-based federal funding decisions will rely in part on the PAT’s evaluation and recommendations.

During the PAT review, UW Sea Grant management and principal investigators will present and discuss the impacts and accomplishments of the program’s research, outreach and education programs.

Interested parties are invited to send written comments on any aspect of the program or its work by May 9, 2006, to either PAT Chair Robin Alden, c/o Program Director, Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program, 1975 Willow Drive, Madison, WI 53706-1177, or Dorn Carlson, Wisconsin Program Officer, National Sea Grant College Program, NOAA R/SG, 1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910.


Note: PAT evaluations of each of the nation’s 30 Sea Grant programs are conducted once every four to five years. Wisconsin’s last federal evaluation occurred in 2001.
