ARM Use at the CDC

LCG delivered a full grant review including the recruitment of 1,000 reviewers and more than 500 applications within a 45 day period from start to close. The Center within the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had never performed a virtual review, let alone three simultaneously with panelists from across the country. Within the timeframe designated from application receipt to award decision, LCG’s virtual review model using the Application Review Module (ARM) was the only method by which they could successfully meet the deadline. The CDC’s review met the deadline while producing a quality product needed to meet their goals.
