Dr. Resnick commented on the subpanel's comfort level with making funding recommendations. She stated that the final funding decisions should be made by the task force, but the subpanel is comfortable conducting evaluations of proposals. The task force discussed whether the task force's report should contain specific proposals for funding. The committee discussed the elements of the task force's report, and whether funding proposals could be included as an attachment to the final report.
The task force moved its next meeting to 3:30 on December 7. It was decided that the subpanel would revise the draft report to make recommendations on broad areas of focus and flesh out the decision-making rubric. The task force decided to discuss at its December 7 meeting how to receive submissions of funding proposals.
