Applications, independent reviews and principal investigator responses are available to panel members via the peer review extranet (STFC’s preferred method for sharing data). Strict controls on data security and data handling are currently in place for government departments and government-funded organisations, including the research councils. Panel members must not save data (onto laptops, discs or hard drives) and if printed copies of any of the documents are made, these must be shredded after use.
