Proposals submitted by May 31, 2000, will be considered in September 2000 by the Evaluation Panel. The USIJI Evaluation Panel is co-chaired by the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy, with representatives from the Agency for International Development, and the Departments of State, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, and Treasury.

USIJI Secretariat - Proposal Review
Project proposals must be developed in accordance
with the existing Guidelines for a USIJI Project Proposal.

Each proposal submitted will receive a preliminary
review to determine whether it is complete and sufficiently detailed to
begin a more comprehensive, formal technical review. Complete proposals
will then receive a comprehensive technical review by a minimum of two
independent parties experienced in both the technology(ies) and country/region
involved. Project partners are encouraged to discuss potential proposals
with Secretariat staff before the formal evaluation and partners also will
be given the opportunity to submit additional information or to clarify
issues identified during the technical review. Secretariat staff
will be available to respond to questions throughout the review process.
After technical review, proposals recommend for acceptance will be presented
at the USIJI Evaluation Panel meeting. Project participants will
then be formally
notified of the Panel's decision.
