Any person or organization may propose a new CLSI project by submitting a completed online Project Proposal Form. Project proposals are evaluated through a progressive project assessment/authorization process that includes:
- An internal idea assessment, to review the proposal for consistency with the mission and goals of CLSI
- An assessment by the appropriate CLSI committee, to evaluate the interest/perceived need of key constituents
Following the project assessment, the completed proposal, the approved document development committee roster, and a project business plan are presented to the Consensus Council for authorization.
