The Standards and Review Office is responsible for two primary activities: the peer review of Institute reports, and the peer review process for the funding of Institute grant applications. The Standards and Review Office developed, implemented, and refined the peer review procedures beginning shortly after the enactment of ESRA. In January 2006, the National Board for Education Sciences formally approved Institute procedures for the peer review of reports and grant applications.
