LOIs will be reviewed by PCORI program staff for responsiveness to this PFA and fit to program goals. Letters will be evaluated based on responses to all items listed in the LOI Template, including whether the proposed topic addresses the priority research question identified in the PFA funding announcement; importance of the specific research question; study design, including having an appropriate, well-justified sample size; and prior relevant research experience. The LOI must also comply with requirements in this funding announcement and adhere to the administrative and formatting requirements listed in the Application Guidelines, specifically the four-page limit for the LOI. Prospective applicants who submitted LOIs to the MS funding announcement will be notified by December 2, 2016, about whether they have been selected to submit a full application. PCORI will accept full applications from only the selected organizations.
