DOJ Seeks Peer Reviewers for FY 2011 Tribal Solicitation

March 11, 2011

The U.S. Department of Justice is currently recruiting Indian country professionals to serve as peer reviewers for the FY 2011 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation. Applicants should be knowledgeable about tribal cultural beliefs, traditions, and practices, and must be able to demonstrate expertise in an issue relevant to the grant applications being reviewed. Topics will include community policing, tribal court development and administration, child sexual abuse, elder abuse, juvenile detention and reentry programming, developing and operating housing programs for victims of violence against women, and more.

Interested individuals already in the OJP Peer Reviewer Database need only make sure their current profile is up to date reflecting any applicable tribal experience. Individuals new to the peer review process may submit a copy of their curriculum vitae or résumé for consideration to Vicky.Tsaparas@usdoj.gov.  All non-federal reviewers will be compensated for their work. CTAS will close on April 21, 2011, at 9:00 p.m. E.T.; however, peer reviewer recruitment will continue in support of funding opportunities available in the Office of Justice Programs.
