CHANGE OF PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR (P.I.)
  • If the PI of a proposed project becomes unable to
    perform the proposed research between submission
    of the application and the initial contract
    period, OCAST will not allow a change in PI.
  • Consequently, if the original PI ceases to head
    the project between submission and review, the
    project will not be eligible for review.
  • If the original PI is lost to the project prior
    to award, the project will not be considered for
    award.
  • When a PI on a proposed project becomes unable to
    perform, the applicant organization(s) must
    inform OCAST within ten (10) days. If funds have
    been awarded, monies will revert to the Oklahoma
    Health Research fund.

DELINQUENT REPORTS
  • Any PI, who has a delinquent progress report or
    has not responded to other OCAST requests for
    information, impact survey data, or special
    reports on a previously funded OCAST project,
    will not be eligible to submit an application for
    new project funding.
  • Any PI, who has a delinquent progress report at
    the time of review, will not be eligible for
    review.
  • Any PI with a delinquent progress report at the
    time of award will not receive a contract until
    the progress report has been submitted. In the
    latter case, if the delinquent report has not
    been submitted within sixty (60) days of the
    award date, OCAST will nullify the award and
    return the monies to the Oklahoma Health Research
    Fund.

33
EVALUATION CRITERIA (Compare to NIH)
  • In general, in addition to evaluating the
    appropriateness of the budget, peer reviewers
    evaluate applications for scientific merit
    according to the following criteria
  • Significance
  • Approach
  • Innovation
  • Investigators
  • Environment
  • and Overall Evaluation

Advancing Oklahomas Knowledge Economy for the
Next 100 Years
34
EVALUATION CRITERIA (Compare to NIH)
Significance Does this study address an
important problem? If the aims of the
application are achieved, how will scientific
knowledge or clinical practice be advanced?
What will be the effect of these studies on the
concepts, methods, technologies, treatments,
services, or preventative interventions that
drive this field?
Advancing Oklahomas Knowledge Economy for the
Next 100 Years
35
EVALUATION CRITERIA (Compare to NIH)
Approach Are the conceptual or clinical
framework, design, methods, and analyses
adequately developed, well integrated, well
reasoned, and appropriate to the aims of the
project? Does the applicant acknowledge
potential problem areas and consider alternative
tactics?
Advancing Oklahomas Knowledge Economy for the
Next 100 Years
36
EVALUATION CRITERIA (Compare to NIH)
Innovation Is the project original and
innovative? For example Does the project
challenge existing paradigms or clinical
practice address an innovative hypothesis or
critical barrier to progress in the field?
Does the project develop or employ novel
concepts, approaches, methodologies, tools, or
technologies for this area?
Advancing Oklahomas Knowledge Economy for the
Next 100 Years
37
EVALUATION CRITERIA (Compare to NIH)
Investigators Are the investigators
appropriately trained and well suited to carry
out this work? Is the work proposed appropriate
to the experience level of the principal
investigator and other researchers? Does the
investigative team bring complementary and
integrated expertise to the project (if
applicable)?
Advancing Oklahomas Knowledge Economy for the
Next 100 Years
38
EVALUATION CRITERIA (Compare to NIH)
Environment Does the scientific environment in
which the work will be done contribute to the
probability of success? Do the proposed studies
benefit from unique features of the scientific
environment, or subject populations, or employ
useful collaborative arrangements? Is there
evidence of institutional support?
Advancing Oklahomas Knowledge Economy for the
Next 100 Years
39
EVALUATION CRITERIA (Compare to NIH)
OVERALL EVALUATION In one paragraph, briefly
summarize the most important points of the
Critique, addressing the strengths and weaknesses
of the application in terms of the five review
criteria. Recommend a score reflecting the
overall impact of the project on the field,
weighing the review criteria, as you feel
appropriate for each application. An
application does not need to be strong in all
categories to be judged likely to have a major
scientific impact and, thus, deserve a high merit
rating. For example, an investigator may
propose to carry out important work that by its
nature is not innovative, but is essential to
move a field forward.
Advancing Oklahomas Knowledge Economy for the
Next 100 Years
40
EVALUATION CRITERIA (Compare to NIH)
Modifications for New Investigators (New ?
newly independent, asst. prof./member) IMPLEMENTAT
ION When reviewing these applications, reviewers
should keep in mind the experience of and the
resources available to the new investigator. When
considering an application from a new
investigator the five new review criteria must be
evaluated in a manner appropriate to the
expectations for and problems likely to be faced
by a new investigator. Specifically, when
considering Approach more emphasis should be
placed on demonstrating that the
techniques/approaches are feasible than on
preliminary results Investigator more emphasis
should be placed on their training and their
research potential than on their track record and
number of publications. Environment there
should be some evidence of institutional
commitment in terms of space and time to perform
the research.
