- Reviewers are notified which of their assigned applications are resubmissions.
- Reviewers will evaluate resubmissions as stand-alone applications, with a fresh perspective, using the Merit Review Criteria.
- Resubmissions are distinct in that reviewers are provided with the following documents:
- Summary statement from the previous application review, inclusive of reviewers’ critiques and notes from the in-person discussion (if the application was discussed).
- A resubmission statement submitted by the applicant.
- While the extent to which specific reviewer comments were addressed is not part of the scoring, awareness of the previous critiques, notes from the in-person discussion, and subsequent application revisions may provide the reviewer with helpful context for evaluating the current application.
- Reviewers will be instructed to follow the guidance above and review resubmissions based on the current information presented and its current merits; at no point should a rediscussion of the previous review be initiated, as the goal is to provide a fair and thorough review of the application as is.
- If an applicant has submitted an application to a targeted PFA and did not receive an award, any subsequent application they submit to a different PFA will not be considered a resubmission.
