1 Introduction

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science (SC) Portfolio Analysis and Management System (PAMS) is SC’s web-based system for managing proposals and subsequent financial assistance awards (grant and cooperative agreements).

Once a decision has been made on a proposal (Decline or Recommended for Funding), the applicant can view the reviews for his or her proposal.

The purpose of this document is to provide step-by-step instructions for users to follow to view their reviews.

2 Prerequisites

Before a user can view reviews, the following criteria must be met:

  • The user has an active, external account.
  • The user’s institution has submitted a proposal, and a decision has been made on that proposal.
  • For Non-SBIR proposals, the user possesses the PI role.
  • For SBIR proposals, the user possesses the PI or SRO role.
