Title: Pooled Fund Project Solicitations
Survey Details/Results: This survey was conducted in December 2007. The information contained in the survey should prove useful to RAC members in understanding how others respond to pooled-fund project solicitations. States were asked the following questions:
(Q1) When do you make decisions regarding participation in new pooled-fund studies (e.g. upon solicitation, monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc.)? If decisions are made on a predetermined schedule, please indicate the specific time(s)) of year those decisions are made.
(Q2) How do you budget funds for new (unplanned) pooled-fund participation?
(Q3) Briefly describe the decision-making process for pooled-fund participation in your state, including any committees or other personnel who influence or control the decision.
(Q4) Once a decision has been made to participate in a new pooled-fund study, please describe any factors that control how quickly funds can be transferred to the lead state?
Of the states surveyed, 41 responded. Their responses are summarized in the PDF file below:
