Nominating Peer Reviewers for NIJ's New "Standing" Panels

As a first step in establishing the SRPs, NIJ extends an invitation for nominations of reviewers to serve on NIJ's SRPs. NIJ welcomes nominations from all persons interested in helping to strengthen NIJ's peer review processes.
Selection of the first members of the SRPs will begin this fall; as members complete their term of appointment and rotate off the SRP, additional nominations will be considered to join each SRP. The reviewers who serve on the SRPs will be selected from among the very best in our field.

In order to aid NIJ in identifying strong candidates to serve on the SRPs, NIJ has posted a new SRP Nomination Form. The form was distributed at the NIJ conference is available online. Download the SRP Nomination Form (pdf, 2 pages). Additional instructions appear on the form. Self nominations are also encouraged.
Forms should be completed and emailed or faxed to Sherran Thomas — sherran.thomas@usdoj.gov or (202) 307-6394.
Beyond the five program areas served by the SRPs, NIJ will continue to rely on its customary peer review process. Learn more about NIJ's current peer review panels and how to serve on them.

Grants Managers Meetings

In the focus groups one of the requested resources identified was the ability for grants writers and managers to collaborate more.  ASCA will use conference calling or GoToMeeting type networking resources to facilitate this type of collaboration.  If you would like to suggest a meeting subject or facilitate a meeting send a request including the topic for a meeting, the target audience (who should attend), and any documents that might be used in the meeting to collaborate@asca.net.

OJP Grant Application Peer Review

OJP actively seeks qualified individuals to join the pool of subject matter experts it calls upon to review the strengths and weaknesses of applications for grant funding. Whether you are selected to review applications for a particular solicitation is based on factors such as subject matter expertise, demographics (such as your position title and geographic location), and prior experience as a reviewer.

Consider the following—

  • The process is time sensitive and deadline driven. Generally, reviewers have 2-4 weeks to review and evaluate 10–30 applications and participate in a consensus call, webinar, or in-person peer review that lasts from 1-2 days.
  • The process involves significant, critical documentation to ensure that you are suitable for assignments and to avoid any conflicts of interest.
  • Reviews are conducted primarily in late winter and spring.
  • Compensation for non-federal reviewers is nominal, $125 per application.
  • The peer review panel’s input is valuable in assisting OJP with award decisions.

If you are interested, start the enrollment process by e-mailing OJP Peer Review.
