write a one- to two-page memo addressed to the team that produced it, discussing the proposal’s strengths and weaknesses. The memo should include an explicit statement either requesting revisions or approving it.

Your evaluation should discuss the following:

  • The proposal’s strengths and/or weaknesses
  • Whether or not it includes too much or too little information
  • Whether its content, organization, style, and design can be improved
  • Whether you, as gatekeeper, believe the proposal, as written, will be approved and funded
