The Collaborative has been discussing what constitutes a SOFAR project (refer to previous 2018 Collaborative meeting summaries) and the process to obtain Collaborative support. Receiving a SOFAR Collaborative “stamp of approval” can especially help with grant applications, as it demonstrates collaboration and broad input. A project in the SOFAR area does not require Collaborative approval, but that approval bolsters the grant application’s competitiveness.
The Collaborative approved a proposed list of actions that identifies non-controversial activities and which activities warrant further discussion with the Collaborative. The list is intended to help project sponsors anticipate support / concern with projects and outline project development and timing accordingly. Non-controversial projects can move forward more expeditiously, while controversial projects are given due review and discussion for potential Collaborative endorsement.
