The purpose of the Peer Panel Review Process is to ensure fairness in reviewing GTOPs funding applications, as well as a consistent quality of technology opportunities programming supported by the City of Austin. To accomplish this, the Office of Telecommunications & Regulatory Affairs utilizes community volunteers as panelists who demonstrate expertise in the subject area.
In order to best facilitate a comprehensive review of potential applicants, please provide a copy of your resume or curriculum vitae by October 1st if you would like to be a reviewer. The Community Technology and Telecommunications Commission will vote on all of the applicants at their meeting on November 8th, 2017, in order to select the final review panel. The next GTOPs review cycle will commence in December 2017.
