Standards and Review Office (SRO)

The Standards and Review Office is responsible for two primary activities: the peer review of IES reports and the peer review process for the funding of IES 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 IES procedures for the peer review of reports and grant applications.
