Earlier this year, we collected input from IMS members for a subcommittee to examine the current structure of support for the statistical sciences within the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and to provide recommendations for NSF to consider.

An update of the committee work is now available from the website for the NSF Advisory Committee for the Directorate of Mathematical and Physical Sciences. The  report is from the StatsNSF Subcommittee, by Iain Johnstone and Fred Roberts, at http://www.nsf.gov/attachments/128225/public/MPSAC-July18-2013-StatSNSF-Johnstone-Roberts_Final.pdf

These are draft recommendations at this point, pending feedback from the various advisory committees at NSF.
