We receive research proposals in confidence and are committed to protecting the confidentiality of their contents through the Non-Disclosure Agreements.
The Non-Disclosure Agreement outlines our policy on the confidentiality of information disclosed to Advisory Council members or External Peer Reviewers during the proposal review process. Reviewers must review and sign this form each time they review a FFAR application.
Specifically, this agreement prohibits a council member or reviewer from, among other actions, either during or after the review process:
Reviewers complete the Non-Disclosure Agreement as part of their application reviews in our Grants Management System.
We may take steps in response to a violation of the above policy to preserve the integrity of our review process. This includes, without limitation, terminating an Advisory Council or Peer Review Panel member’s relationship with FFAR.
