The NASGRO Consortium is a group of companies that provide sustaining guidance and support for NASGRO development. Consortium participants identify and prioritize desired new NASGRO capabilities while providing a stable revenue stream to accelerate NASGRO enhancements.
The Consortium is organized in three-year cycles. Participating companies make a three-year financial commitment with the option to renew at the end of each cycle. The first NASGRO Consortium cycle began in 2001, and the sixth cycle (2016-2019) is currently underway. New participants will be accepted for the planned seventh cycle beginning in 2019. Companies can participate at a single geographical site, two sites, or an unlimited number of sites (with a substantial discount on participation fees).
