So what about outcomes? A large majority of candidates are successful. The primary reasons for unsuccessful reviews are the following: need for more development in professional stature, leadership roles, originality, creativity, or publication record. The other one is lack of clarity of the role or impact when an individual was one of several authors or part of a team. So that's why I kept emphasizing over and over again, make sure that you make the TQB aware of your role in team efforts. Final notes on the path forward and the ITR. Emphasis is placed on integrated transdisciplinary research. It's not a requirement, but there's a great emphasis on ITR. From single-investigator to multi-investigator cross-organizational research is the way the future is taking place. More scientists with more flexible skills, fewer rigid specialists will be the rule from now on. What will ITR mean for the TQB? More emphasis will be placed on team projects, less on single-investigator research. But don't take this too seriously; single-investigator research is still important. Your roles as a scientist are going to be very heavily weighed, but the emphasis in the future is going to be on team projects. So this means you're going to have to find ways to evaluate and reward contributions to ITR research teams. Not everyone can be first author for team products. Co-authorship is very important as well. Strengthen management and research staff's knowledge about the TQB and the ITR. There is additional guidance for TQB promotions that one should read on the intranet. In light of ITR projects, TQB candidates should clearly articulate contributions and leadership demonstrated in team accomplishments and products. The candidates should use input from team leads and program leaders (for example, NPDs) to portray the importance of their work. They should indicate how their work and involvement contributed to the overall project, and they should explain how their interactions assisted in the development of innovative concepts, approaches, or technologies. So in light of ITR projects, the TQB candidate should provide evidence of their role in solving problems within the current project, and predicting their role in problem solving within the future project. The candidate should also identify how other contributions early in the ITR team effort influenced the direction of the project. The candidate should also provide evidence of how their role in the ITR project may be relevant to the agency in the future and will lead to initiation of new research programs and directions. That's it for the process. I'd like to acknowledge that the committee that was formed in 2009, who updated the ORD TQB policy and aligned it to the path forward and ITR principles, they consisted of Mr. Randy Brady, who's the director of the Human Resources Division of OARS; and the TQB chairs from the various labs and centers within ORD (NRMRL, NERL, NHEERL, NCEA, NHSRC, and NCCT). Thank you very much, and I wish you the best of luck in putting together your packages. I hope this has been a useful and fruitful webinar for you to put your package together efficiently. Thank you very much.
