ORISE contract provides scientific peer review services for federal agencies

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science Education coordinates the peer review process from beginning to end—planning, structuring and fully executing multi-format reviews that involve hundreds of reviewers. Each objective review is completed on schedule, within the budget and with a high degree of process integrity.

ORISE assesses the scientific and technical merit of research and development proposals, ensures that scientific information is credible before distributing it and enables funding agencies to determine whether adequate progress is being made in ongoing projects.
