This will be a single-stage competitive process. Interested applicants will submit a full proposal addressing all the proposed program objectives. Proposals will be thoroughly evaluated and scored by a merit review panel. Proposal review will consider the proposal’s alignment with program objectives, as well as the applicant’s capacity to deliver results on the proposed objectives.
