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, 2017-2018:
• Provide education to Committee Chairs and Assembly Planning Committee Chairs to improve the quality of applications, 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 a 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;

• Develop and trial a system to triage low-quality applications to focus committee deliberations on higher quality applications, in order to enhance the ranking process; solicit feedback from applicants and committee members.
