Schedule of Peer Review
headline bar


Dates are estimated, and provided here for your convenience.

Please confirm dates with the appropriate Area or Headquarters office. The "Plan to Area" dates are set by the Areas. OSQR sets 'Plan to OSQR', and Review start and end dates; all other dates are set or coordinated via the Office of National Programs. New or substantially changed research plans developed and submitted for review after their National Program review cycle is completed and prior to the "Ad Hoc Cutoff" date, will go through the next Ad Hoc review session. Such plans submitted for review after the "Ad Hoc Cutoff" date will follow the next regular review cycle for their National Program. More information on setting dates can be found at Directions for Setting Dates. If you need additional assistance, contact OSQR at
