The Program Review Subcommittee of the Finance Committee reviews project proposals submitted by assemblies and committees that require scientific peer-review and proposes a rank list in accordance with the priorities of the Society for consideration of funding in the annual budget.

Benchmarks, 2018-2019:
• Provide education to Committee Chairs and Assembly Planning Committee Chairs to improve the quality of applications, note process changes, emphasizing time cycle of successful projects to avoid delays in project completion;
• Continue to enhance the assessment of proposals regarding their value to the Society’s mission;
• Develop and trial a review process for proposals for guidelines deemed critical by the ATS Board of Directors
• Develop written guidance on collaboration with other organizations to streamline and coordinate the application process for joint documents;
• Implement methods to be nimble, allowing off-cycle review of projects identified as high priority by leadership;
• Continue and refine system of triaging application review to focus committee deliberations on applications scoring higher, to enhance the ranking process; solicit feedback from applicants and committee members.
