Consortia will be chosen for funding through a competitive peer review of the proposals submitted in response to RFP-IV. To ensure scientific integrity, GoMRI uses National Science Board peer evaluation protocols to select funded research, in a manner similar to the National Science Foundation. A three-stage review process will be used: 1) GoMRI staff (with the concurrence of the Chief Science Officer and a subset of the Research Board) will determine compliance or non-compliance of each proposal submission; 2) topical expert panels of peer scientists will individually review assigned proposals in advance and then meet face-to-face to review full proposals; and 3) the Research Board will meet face-to-face to evaluate all proposals and select the portfolio of successful RFP-IV proposals. BP and the Gulf of Mexico Alliance have no role in the peer review process or selection of awards.
