You may receive
an e-mail requesting revisions.
- Once you revise your application according to the pre-review comments,
you must resubmit it. If it is not accepted by the pre-reviewers
for Full Committee review, you will be asked for further revisions.
If it is accepted
for Full Committee review, it will be sent to Committee members

approval letter, or a letter asking for further revisions to
the application and your written response.
- Once you have submitted your revised RIO application, your response
