Peer Review

Since 1987, CSR has helped our Federal Government orchestrate every phase of the peer review process. Our expertise and systems support every grant review stage:

  • Recruitment of subject-matter experts through client-tailored online systems;
  • Design, tracking, and scoring of worksheets and databases;
  • Receipt and sorting of grant applications;
  • Development of reviewer assignment and tracking systems;
  • Application of conflict-of-interest, confidentiality, and consultant agreements;
  • Arrangement and monitoring of reviewers’ travel and lodging;
  • Hosting of review panels at our headquarters or other locations;
  • Editing of peer reviews and preparation of summary reports; and
  • Processing of reviewer payments.

We foster fair and objective consideration of applications, use competent external subject-matter experts and rigorous criteria, and ensure timely and efficient award decisions.
