RXTE Stage 2 Budget Proposal Information

Dear RXTE user,

NASA has recently completed the scientific and technical 
evaluation (Stage 1) of proposals received in response
to the Amendment to NASA Research Announcement NRA 
02-OSS-01, "Research Opportunities in Space Science - 
2002", entitled "Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer Guest 
Observer Program - Cycle 8.". By now, all researchers
who responded to this call for proposals should have
been informed on the results of the peer review.  A
list of accepted targets is now available on the Web at

US-based investigators are now invited to submit Stage 2 
(budget) proposals for support of selected Cycle 8
proposals. The budget process is open to Guest Observers 
associated with US institutions (and who expect to remain
so during the grant period), and may include (a) US PIs, 
and (b) US Co-Is on foreign-PI proposals, where the 
involvement of the US Co-I is significant, and critical 
to the success of the investigation.

More information about the Stage 2 budget process, and 
detailed instructions for submitting budget proposals,
can be found on the RXTE Guest Observer Facility Web site

The PI (or the lead Co-I of a foreign-PI proposal) is 
responsible for submitting a single package containing
the budget request for a given proposal. Please submit 
the signed original and ten (10) hardcopies of the 
completed proposal package not later than 


4:30pm EST on Tuesday 15 April 2003 to:


                        Dr. Patricia T. Boyd

recommended funding level for your proposal(s). As 
always, any questions about this process should be
directed to the the RXTE Guest Observer Facility.
