Proposal Review Panels

Proposal Review Panels

Regarding Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality

Conflict of Interest (COI):

As a Proposal Review Panel (PRP) member, you are obligated to inform the panel chair of any conflicts of interest that may arise with respect to proposals that your panel is set to review. Examples of COIs include:

  • PRP member is listed as a participant on the proposal
  • PRP member is from the same institution as the proposal author(s)
  • PRP member has any commercial or financial interest in the proposed work
  • PRP member has a close personal (e.g., family) and/or close professional (e.g., a former student) tie to proposal collaborators or PIs


Under no circumstances should PRP members discuss any aspects of PRP business outside of the review meetings. PRP members must not communicate with the authors of a proposal at any time during the review process. Any discussion of PRP business must be strictly limited to other panel members and APS staff as needed for technical advice or improvement of the review process.
