Vacancies in the research team should be addressed in this section with a discussion of the anticipated expertise and discipline and the expected contributions of this person to the project.
Project Management and Evaluation (not counted in page limit)– It is particularly important for projects with several researchers to describe the overall management and evaluation plan. This section provides a basis for demonstrating how the project team functions and makes decisions.
Milestones Table– (not counted in page limit) Insert a Milestone table(using this format: page orientation: portrait; font: 9 pt Arial Narrow). This illustrates intended progress through the project plan. Reviewers look here to understand the path of the project. Milestones are points where significant accomplishments can be documented. (See Box: What is a Milestone?) These are identified for each objective or subobjective and hypothesis. The table also describes how progress will be documented through products (e.g., scientific papers, databases, germplasm releases, technology transfer, CRADAs).
