The Project Review 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, 2023-2024:
• Review Proposals with a systematic process including feedback and develop a rank list for Finance and the EC.
• Continue to provide education to Assembly Chairs, 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.
• Collaborate with the Documents Development and Implementation Committee and Publications Policy Committee leaders to ensure continued communication regarding projects.
• Educate applicants about the importance of diversity and inclusion as well as being clearer in defining what ATS considers under-represented minorities. Quantify Diversity data and share with the Health Equity and Diversity Committee.
• Develop a proposal for potential ATS co-sponsorship of external workshops or conferences outside of the International Conference.
• Integrate the ATS/ERS projects into a uniform review process.
• Update Proposal Portal
• Nominate a diverse slate of candidates for ATS Respiratory Health Awards.
• This committee is responsible for reviewing content it has previously posted to the ATS website to determine if it should be updated and moved to the new site or archived/deleted. Using parameters established by the ATS Digital Content Committee as a guideline, committee members will make necessary modifications to ensure the content is accurate and conforms with established ATS standards. Reviews are to be completed by December 1, 2023.
