Abstract

The process by which proposals for the use of the NRAO1 telescopes are selected is described. The demands of modern astronomical research have required new procedures to accommodate projects which require large amounts of observing time or which study transient phenomena, and to facilitate the coordination of programs with NRAO telescopes and telescopes at other observatories.
