NOAA - Annual number of peer-reviewed publications related to environmental understanding and predictionperformance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2019-07-11T13:55:57.000Z
The annual number of peer reviewed publications is an indicator of productivity and relevance and is tracked using online resources. Peer review is one of the important procedures used to ensure that the quality of published information meets the standards of the scientific and technical community. * FY 2019 is the first year that we are reporting on both NOAA-authored publications (previously the only type of publication measured) and NOAA-funded publications.
NTIS - Total investment by the Federal Government on new public-private projects (or Government- Industry projects) entered into under the Joint Venture ( JV) Authority per yearperformance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2019-07-22T17:28:38.000Z
TThe indicator measures the value, in U.S. Dollars, of all new project agreements between NTIS' Joint Venture Partners (JVPs) and Federal Agencies facilitated by NTIS in a given year. By tracking the obligated values, this indicator shows the actual Federal Government investment in technology and data analytics development
EDA - Percentage of those actions taken by Trade Adjustment Assistance Center clients that achieved the expected resultsperformance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2019-07-05T18:00:55.000Z
This is a follow up to the previous measure: “Percentage of Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (TAAC) clients taking action as a result of the assistance facilitated by the TAAC.” This measure will determine if the assistance facilitated by the TAACs is market based and results in desired outcomes. The centers conduct client surveys and report findings to EDA.

This indicator demonstrates that NIST consistently produces useful and relevant scientific and technical publications and is outcome-oriented. The "relative citation impact" indicator is the ratio of the average number of citations per publication (citation rata) for all NIST publications in a year to the average expected citation rate for similar publications in a large group of peer institutions in the world. Publications typically lag by a minimum of two years due to the time needed for research, writing, journal peer review, and publication processes. The average for U.S. institutions is about 1.3.

This indicator measures the combined impact of export promotion, Advocacy, and commercial diplomacy assistance. The annual value of export promotion work is extrapolated from annual client survey results, Advocacy impact value is based on the dollar value of WINs reported to the Advocacy Center and commercial diplomacy value represents the value of trade barriers reduced, removed or prevented based on economic impact analysis

The indicator represents the dollar value of exports generated by Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) project activity. Through MDCP public/private partnerships, ITA provides technical and financial assistance to “cooperators” like trade associations and other non-profits. The elements of each project vary but examples include educating foreign authorities about industry standards, establishing product demonstration centers abroad, underwriting the cost of participation in foreign trade shows, and addressing non-tariff barriers to trade.

This indicator captures the results of ITA’s efforts to facilitate fair competition in international trade for U.S. firms and workers by improving the number of trade barriers reduced, removed, or prevented. The measure tends to fluctuate over time as the outcome (foreign governments agreeing to voluntarily honor trade agreement obligations) is dependent on actions by sovereign nations which are outside of direct U.S. control.

NOAA - Annual number of coastal, marine, and Great Lakes habitat acres acquired or designated for long-term protectionperformance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2019-07-25T18:59:55.000Z
Discontinued after FY 2018. NOAA protects and restores key habitats that provide critical ecosystem functions. These habitats support the health of endangered or threatened species and essential fish habitat, reduce coastal pollution, buffer the impacts of coastal storms and flooding, and provide the public with recreational access to the coast among other societal or economic benefits. NOAA maintains the health of coastal, marine and Great Lakes habitats by designating and managing important areas for long-term conservation and by providing support to state and local governments to purchase and protect additional key habitats. This long-term protection measure tracks the number of acres acquired with NOAA funds by state or local government agencies from willing sellers, particularly through the Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP) and Coastal Zone Management Program (CZMP). The number of acres designated for long-term protection by NOAA or by state partners is tracked through the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries Program (ONMS) and National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS).

The formula-driven calculation projects investment data at 3, 6, and 9 year intervals from the investment award. The formula is based on a study done by Rutgers University, which compiled and analyzed the performance of EDA construction investments after 9 years. This approach was reviewed and validated by third-party analysis conducted by Grant Thornton in 2008. Based on this formula and a review of EDA's historical results, EDA estimates that 40% of the 9-year projection would be realized after 3 years, 75% after 6 years, and 100% after 9 years.
