About NPRA

The National Program Retrospective Assessment (NPRA) is an independent internal evaluation of the impact and outcome of each of the 17 nationally focused, scientifically based ARS research programs based in the Office of National Programs (ONP). 

This review process, is a collaboration with the National Program Leaders (NPLs) for each national program. On a 5-year cyclic basis accomplishment documents are compiled and prepared for review by an external panel of scientific experts.  For each individual program, these experts critique and assess the success which has been achieved based on the current National Program Action Plan.
