SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract The NASA STEM Gateway (NASA’s universal registration and data management system) is a comprehensive tool designed to allow learners (i.e., students and educators) to apply to NASA STEM engagement opportunities (e.g., internships, fellowships, challenges, educator professional development, experiential learning activities, etc.) in a single location. NASA personnel manage the selection of applicants and implementation of engagement opportunities within the Universal Registration and Data Management System. Additionally, NASA can deploy an evaluation survey to collect shortand intermediate-outcome data by surveying learners (i.e., students) in the NASA Internship Program. Results from evaluation survey information collected will be used by the NASA Office of STEM Engagement (OSTEM) to establish better defined goals, outcomes, and standards for measuring progress and also to evaluate the outcomes of NASA’s Internship Program. This process of improvement will enhance NASA’s strategic planning, performance planning, and performance reporting efforts as required by the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010 and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:11 Mar 01, 2021 Jkt 253001 Online/Web-based.

Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to renew an information collection. Abstract: Proposed Project The Engineering Research Centers (ERC) program supports an integrated, interdisciplinary research environment to advance fundamental engineering knowledge and engineered systems; educate a globally competitive and diverse engineering workforce from K– 12 on; and join academe and industry in partnership to achieve these goals. ERCs conduct world-class research through partnerships of academic institutions, national laboratories, industrial organizations, and/or other public/ private entities. New knowledge thus created is meaningfully linked to society. PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12219 ERCs conduct world-class research with an engineered systems perspective that integrates materials, devices, processes, components, control algorithms and/or other enabling elements to perform a well-defined function. These systems provide a unique academic research and education experience that involves integrative complexity and technological realization. The complexity of the systems perspective includes the factors associated with its use in industry, society/environment, or the human body. ERCs enable and foster excellent education, integrate research and education, speed knowledge/technology transfer through partnerships between academe and industry, and prepare a more competitive future workforce. ERCs capitalize on diversity through participation in center activities and demonstrate leadership in the involvement of groups underrepresented in science and engineering. Centers are required to submit annual reports on progress and plans, which will be used as a basis for performance review and determining the level of continued funding. To support this review and the management of a Center, ERCs also are required to submit management and performance indicators annually to NSF via a data collection website that is managed by a technical assistance contractor. These indicators are both quantitative and descriptive and may include, for example, the characteristics of center personnel and students; sources of cash and in-kind support; expenditures by operational component; characteristics of industrial and/or other sector participation; research activities; education activities; knowledge transfer activities; patents, licenses; publications; degrees granted to students involved in Center activities; descriptions of significant advances and other outcomes of the ERC effort. Such reporting requirements will be included in the cooperative agreement which is binding between the academic institution and the NSF. Each Center’s annual report will address the following categories of activities: (1) Vision and impact, (2) strategic plan, (3) research program, (4) innovation ecosystem and industrial collaboration, (5) education, (6) infrastructure (leadership, management, facilities, diversity) and (7) budget issues. For each of the categories the report will describe overall objectives for the year, progress toward center goals, problems the Center has encountered in E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This collection of information supports NASA's term and condition

condition will also require the recipient to report to NASA if the PI 
or Co-I is placed on administrative leave or if the recipient has 
imposed any administrative action on the PI or Co-I, or any 
determination or an investigation of an alleged violation of the 
recipient's policies or codes of conduct, statutes, regulations, or 
executive orders relating to sexual harassment, other forms of 
harassment, or sexual assault.
    In reviewing harassment notifications pursuant to the term and

consult with the Authorized Organizational Representative (AOR), or 
designee of the reporting institution. Based on the results of this 
review and consultation, NASA may, if necessary, assert its 
programmatic stewardship responsibilities and oversight authority to 
initiate the substitution or removal of the PI or any co-PI, reduce the 
award funding amount, or where neither of
