    Priority is give to positions that align with at least one of our Performance Goals. The Site Selection Guidelines are available for your reference, which we use for partner assessments and the slot allotment process. We give very careful consideration to how slots are allotted. During this process, we may be in contact with you regarding clarification or areas of concern. You can expect to be notified of your request status by late-May. If your organization is awarded a slot, you should be prepared to begin recruitment immediately. Upon award notification, you will receive information about the recruitment process. If your organization is not awarded a slot but all eligibility criteria is met, it may be possible to place your organization to our waitlist in the case a slot opens up at a later date.
