Included is NSRP Number Benefit Value Rating s Title, Author Date Cost where available Abstract and Benefit Analysis. It has found that those projects offering timely information and assistance in the environmental and hazardous material areas have yielded the most value in the shipyard community. Several facilities-related projects of wide application potential have also been beneficial to the shipyard users of this information. This Task has also assessed the opinion of the shipyard using community on the administration and management of Panel SP-1 itself. It has found that the practices currently in effect have been well received, and should be continued with only minor improvements. In regard to NSRP matters in general, however, the survey has revealed major concern about the length and uncertainty of the project finding cycle. It also points out difficulties in achieving and maintaining faithful communications among SPC Panels, and between Panel SP-1 and the ECB Executive Control Board of the Ship Production Committee of SNAME. These matters should be examined and treated promptly, as the future success of the NSRP may well depend on it.
