III. Duration of Requested Use
Note: It is the responsibility of the researcher to ensure that all elements of the project are taken-down and removed from KAEFS and site restoration completed in a timely manner following completion of the project. This should normally occur within 30 days (removal) or 60 days (restoration) of the end date given above. In the event that this does not occur, researchers will be responsible for costs incurred by KAEFS and OU for experiment removal and site restoration. An OU departmental account or account with the Office of the VPR may be required to cover any incurred site clean-up costs.
IV. Research Support
V. Research Support
1. A one-page summary description or abstract of the project that will be conducted at KAEFS. This summary should be suitable for review by the entire KAEFS Steering Committee.
2. A complete version of the proposal describing the project and the work that will be conducted at KAEFS. This document will be reviewed by KAEFS Steering Committee members with expertise in your field.

VII. Site Impact
If you answered yes to either of the above questions, provide detailed information about the impact on vegation, wetlands, wildlife or the introduction of organisms from off site. Thoroughly describe plans to restore the research site to its original condition following completion of the study. This should include descriptions of plans for experiment take-down and removal, waste management, site restoration, or other aspects of the project that may impact site quality.
VIII. Facilities, Equipment, and Support Staff
If you have checked any of the above items, provide detailed information about the specific needs in an attached document. Also provide copies of any permits. If outside contractors will be used, provide all contact information and scope of work to be performed.
X. Education and Outreach
As part of our mission, we encourage all researchers to work with the KAEFS staff to develop appropriate educational and outreach modules based on their research. These activities are appropriate for broader impacts statements for many funding agencies.
Any aspects of the proposed project not addressed above that need to be shared with the KAEFS Steering Committee should be provided in an attached document.
Researchers at KAEFS must comply with research procedures and policies of the University of Oklahoma and KAEFS. Failure to comply will result in immediate termination of site use. Updates or modifications of procedures will be communicated to the KAEFS Director in writing. Researchers are responsible for conduct of their personnel or other individuals under their direction while at KAEFS. Researchers will provide annual and final reports to KAEFS summarizing their work, findings, and other aspects of their project to KAEFS.
