Some research funding organisations have consumers on committees that determine which applications should be funded. They should give you all the information you need to do your job – if not, ask. They will usually have their own set of assessment criteria; your job will be to consider each application against those criteria. You should not add other information to your consideration beyond that provided in the application. That would be unfair to that applicant and to other applicants who have not benefited from additional information beyond the application form. You should also try to take personal views out of your consideration. Be as objective as you can and try to provide an independent, objective perspective.
