Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*This committee is composed of recognized biomedical and/or behavioral research authorities who represent the forefront of research and technical knowledge and who provide first-level merit review of highly scientific and technical research grant application and/or contract proposals in the fields of biomedical research and behavioral science related to the causes, consequences, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of alcohol abuse and alcoholism. The committee reviewed 321 grants requesting $43,500.047.
How is membership balanced?*The reviewers for each meeting are selected to evaluate grant applications or contract proposals for a specific, perhaps a narrow, expertise area. Participants for each meeting are assembled to most efficiently and effectively cover the number and breadth of applications or contracts requiring review. The members designated to serve on this committee are authorities knowledgeable in the fields relevant to alcohol abuse and alcoholism in the areas of biomedical, basic and clinical neuroscience, basic behavioral science, treatment, health services, epidemiology, prevention, human development and AIDS.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The committee held 14 FACA and 9 non-FACA work group meetings during this reporting period. These meetings supported the designated mission and the responsibilities of the Institute.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This committee is composed of recognized biomedical and/or behavioral research authorities who represent the forefront of research and technical knowledge and who provide first-level merit review of highly scientific and technical research grant applications and cooperative agreements. These evaluations and recommendations cannot be obtained from other sources because the specialized, complex nature of the applications and contract proposals requires a unique balance and breadth of expertise not available on the NIH staff or from other established sources.
Why close or partially close meetings?The meetings of the committee were closed to the public for the review of grant applications and/or contract proposals. Sections 552(c)(4) and 552b(c)(6) of the Government in the Sunshine Act permit the closing of meetings where discussion could reveal confidential trade secrets or commercial property such as patentable materials and personal information, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
Recommendation RemarksReports: This committee did not produce any public reports.

Costs: The operating costs are significantly higher in FY17 due to an increase in the number of non-FACA work group meetings.

Zip Codes: Due to the large number of members associated with this committee, NIH staff are unable to provide individual zip codes for all members. Current individual meeting rosters, including zip codes are available on line at https://public.era.nih.gov/pubroster/.

The DFO and Committee Decision Maker positions are held by the same individual because of the assignment of responsibilities within the Institute.

Outcome Increased Customer SatisfactionNoAction CommentAn action of approved or recommended for grants receiving initial peer review by this committee does not infer that the grant will be or has been funded. Research grant applications submitted to NIH must go through a two-step review process that includes the initial peer review for scientific and technical merit and a second step of review and approval by a National Advisory Council for program relevance. In addition, prior to an award or funding being made, NIH staff must conduct an administrative review for a number of other considerations. These include alignment with NIH's funding principles, review of the project budget, assessment of the applicant's management systems, determination of applicant eligibility, and compliance with public policy requirements. After all these steps have been completed, NIH officials make funding decisions on individual grant applications.
