The Recurrent Program Peer Reviews include 5-year cycle peer reviews of all CBS programs. In order to manage such peer reviews for more than 60 programs, CBS has developed a highly standardized model. Several principles have been followed. Self evaluation reports for the peer reviews must be short, but comprehensive, fact based, and make use of existing data as much as possible. They must be as little a burden to Program Directors and program administrators as possible, and follow a standardized format in order to allow benchmarking across programs. Finally, they must take into account program development initiatives already taken by the program.
