Events to Help You Develop Your Plans

Departmental BPC Plan Events

A Departmental BPC Plan serves to coordinate BPC activities within a department and provide context for the activities proposed by PIs in their Project BPC Plan.

Project BPC Plan Events

A Project BPC Plan is submitted to NSF as a supplementary document that details the proposed BPC activities of the PIs. A Project BPC Plan may reference and link to one or more Departmental BPC Plans.
