Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know if I am added to BJA’s Peer Reviewer Database (PRD)? What happens next?

The PRD is used by all Office of Justice Programs (OJP) bureaus and program offices, including BJA, to select highly qualified reviewers to participate in the peer review process for OJP grant applications. If your qualifications match BJA's requirements to become a peer reviewer, an automated email will be sent to you with a user name, a password, and a link to the database. In addition, you will receive a followup email with more information about the database and how to complete your profile. Once you are fully enrolled in the PRD with a completed profile, your résumé will be searchable by OJP program staff. The database is used to find potential reviewers who have specific skills to match the needs of each grant solicitation. If you are found to be a match for any of these peer review opportunities, you will be contacted by the peer review staff. Please ensure that your email address and phone number are correct on your résumé. The invitation correspondence you receive via email will contain a timeline and a copy of the grant solicitation.
