that use CSCOR/COP prescribed formats as announced in the Federal
Register Notice. Progress reports are due annually according

Standard Terms and Conditions issued by the Grants Management
Division. For this purpose, CSCOR/COP has received OMB clearance

last interim progress report, usually 90 days in length, should
be submitted as part of the comprehensive Final Progress report.

to NODC. Three copies each of any technical reports, publication,
or project syntheses will be provided to the COP. A copy will
be forwarded to the NOAA Library Archives.

or indirectly, by this award should include the following acknowledgment: "This

is estimated to average 7.5 hours per response, including time
for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources,
gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and

this burden estimate or any other aspects of this collection
of information, including suggestions for reducing this burden,
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required
to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for
failure to comply with a collection of information subject to
the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act, unless that
collection displays a currently valid OMB control number.
