A meeting of the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) Cooperative Institutes (CI's) directors and administrators was held at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA), Fort Collins, CO, to discuss topics of mutual interest to the CIs and NOAA. Representatives from each of the NESDIS CIs and the Cooperative Remote Sensing Science & Technology (CREST) center were in attendance, in addition to staff from NOAA/NESDIS and the NOAA Grants Management Division. The meeting consisted of briefing the attendees on guidance and policy updates that directly impact the research and administrative process of each of the CIs. The meeting concluded with a list of action items from both NOAA and the CI's, which will be posted on the NESDIS web site. The action items list will be updated periodically to record the responses.
