Abstract The objective of NIST HMEP centers is to enhance productivity, technological performance, and strengthen the global competitiveness of small- and medium-sized U.S. based manufacturing firms. Manufacturing extension centers are part of the HMEP national system of extension service providers. Currently, the HMEP national system consists of over 400 centers and field offices located throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Information regarding HMEP and these centers is available online at http://www.nist.gov/mep/. The objective of the projects funded under this program is to provide manufacturing extension services to primarily small- and medium-sized manufacturers in the United States. These services are provided through the coordinated efforts of a regionally-based manufacturing extension center and local technology resources. The focus of a center is to provide those manufacturing extension services required by the small- and mediumsized manufacturers in its service region utilizing the most cost effective, local, leveraged resources for those services. It is not the intent of this program that the centers perform research and development. This request is for the information collection requirements associated with submission of proposals for NIST HMEP funding. The intent of the collection is to meet statutory requirements for NIST HMEP, as well as compliance with 15 U.S.C. 278k, as implemented in 15 CFR Part 290. VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:53 Jul 31, 2012 Jkt 226001 II. Method of Collection Paper or electronically via www.grants.gov. IV.
