At the November 5th Planetary Science Subcommittee meeting, there was a presentation describing a plan to restructure the existing planetary science R&A programs. The slides that were presented are online: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/pss/nov2013/. The slides discussing the plan are contained in the presentation listed for Jim Green.
The Planetary Science Subcommittee has asked each Assessment Group (AG) to gather and compile questions, comments, and concerns that the community may have regarding the R&A restructuring plan and for each AG to send the compilation to Jim Green by November 22. As mentioned on slide 50, a virtual town hall meeting is planned for early December, and the thought is that by compiling questions now, the town hall can be as effective as possible.
All questions, big and small, general or specific, are welcomed and the identities of those providing comments will be removed but the final compiled reports may be posted on AG websites. Please indicate if you do not want your comment included in a compilation (with identities removed) on the websites.
