Applications Selection Process
Notice of Award (NoA)
All eligible applications will be initially reviewed for completeness by the Procurement and Grants Office (PGO) staff. In addition, eligible applications will be jointly reviewed for responsiveness by the National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) and PGO. Incomplete applications and applications that are non-responsive to the eligibility criteria will not advance through the review process. Applicants will be notified the application did not meet eligibility and/or published submission requirements.
An objective review panel consisting of CDC employees will evaluate complete and responsive applications according to the criteria listed in Section VI. Application Review Information, subsection entitled "Evaluation Criteria". The objective review process will follow the policy requirements as stated in the GPD 2.04. Part A (HIV Screening and HIV Counseling, Testing, and Referral) and Part B (Enhanced Linkage to Medical Care and Partner Services) will receive separate scores. The score for each Part will be the sum of the score for the Program Services section and the Program Support section of that Part.
Applications will be funded in order by score and rank determined by the review panel. In addition, the following factors may affect the funding decision:
- Proportionate distribution of estimated combined 2007 Black/African American and Hispanic/Latino AIDS diagnoses among eligible jurisdictions.
CDC will provide further justification for any decision to fund out of rank order.
