It is of little use to set up careful proposal review processes aimed at selecting for funding high-quality proposals if nothing has been done first to assure that there will be such high-quality proposals among those reviewed. Nothing is more frustrating (and futile) than to have to award earmarked funds to the “best” proposal(s) from a batch where none even rises to the level of mediocrity. It seems obvious, therefore, that the first concern of funding agencies should be to encourage and facilitate the submission of good proposals.
