Are you going to be working in Chile for more than 30 days? Then you should read Document-28242 and these pages. You may also find this presentation recording useful. Further travel and safety information is also available.
They contain details of the requirements and benefits that will apply to all LSST Personnel on short term assignment in Chile (greater than 30 calendar days). The information applies to all LSST Personnel regardless of your employer, and where distinctions are needed (and available) these are clearly specified. Less than 30 days is considered a normal business trip.
So, how long will you be assigned to work in Chile?
Financial support for LSST comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded LSST Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA). The DOE-funded effort to build the LSST camera is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support LSST in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
