The purpose of this project was to analyze and evaluate the results of the Peer-to-Patent (P2P) program at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). To properly evaluate the P2P pilot program the team received opinions from supervisors of the pilot program and participants, quantitative and qualitative data on the efficiency, quality, effectiveness, and inter-office processes involved. The team used these methods to form recommendations to the USPTO on the future of the P2P program.
