Action Taken: 

1.  Steve Estes and Seodial Deena, chairs of each sub-committee, will meet and merge each sub-committee’s research grant scores to establish the ranking of all approved grants.


2.  Scores from each committee member and the rankings will be e-mailed to all committee and ex-officio members.


3.  Each committee member should check their scores to be sure all scores have been entered correctly and then report back to their respective sub-committee chair.


4.  Once all scores have been reviewed, a final ranking of all approved grants will be developed and re-submitted to all committee members.


5.  If there is a tie among the grant’s rankings, then the grant with the most five’s, most 4’s, etc. would be selected first.
