Please distribute as appropriate:

The U.S. Department of Education, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), is seeking peer reviewers with expertise in Cloud and World Wide Web access for people with disabilities.

NIDRR needs reviewers with Cloud and Web accessibility expertise for our Field Initiated Program (FIP) competition and a Disability and Rehabilitation Research Program (DRRP) competition on Inclusive Cloud and Web computing.  Both of these competitions will take place by teleconference and an online computer system, so reviewers will not need to travel.

If you would like to be considered for one of our peer review panels, please send an updated and full version of your resume to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>, and indicate your interest and date availability in the email.

NIDRR's Field-Initiated Competition will be held on three sets of dates:

April 29-May 1, 2013
May 6-8, 2013
May 20-22, 2013

The competition for the DRRP on Inclusive Cloud and Web computing will take place sometime this summer.   The Notice of Proposed Priority is out for public comment now, and is attached.  Comments may be sent to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by February 14, 2013.  You must include the phrase "Proposed Priority for Inclusive Cloud and Web Computing in the subject line of your electronic message.

Please feel free to distribute this notice to interested colleagues.  Also, please note that Federal employees are not eligible to serve as NIDRR peer reviewers.

Thank you very much for your assistance,
