I can tell you that usage is not correct, but I'm having a hard time articulating why, so I hope you will bear with me a little bit.
I think the biggest issue is that one does not "organize criteria". The typical verbs associated with "criteria" are "to create", "to meet", "to give", "to define". For instance, one version of my resume says
Ensured all criteria were met to receive federal grants.
Another is that "criteria" is not typically used in isolation. It is generally criteria for something. In my example above it is criteria for receiving federal grants.
Finally, criteria are usually verbs. I would not say
The criteria for receiving federal grants include deadlines and schedules.
Instead I would say
The criteria for receiving federal grants include meeting deadlines and following schedules.
To sum up, I would rewrite your example to say:
Ensuring deadlines, schedules, and other criteria are met.
One final note: In common usage criteria is both the plural and the singular, but in technical and professional writing you should know that criteria is plural. To use the singular you should say a set of criteria, or a criterion. So a list of requirements for an object to be considered alive would be a set of criteria, and one of those criteria would be the criterion that it grows.
