NIH Updates Its "Grants Policy Statement"


The National Institutes of Health has released a revised edition of the NIH Grants Policy Statement, applicable to NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods beginning on or after October 1. This revision supersedes the December 2003 statement as a standard term and condition of award. It incorporates policy changes and clarifications issued since the 2003 version and contains a reorganization and new chapter numbering system. A list of changes is available at:

NIH also announced that until its permanent fiscal 2011 appropriation is made, it will issue noncompeting research grant awards at an amount less than indicated on the most recent notice of award (usually up to 90% of the previously committed level). The Department of Health and Human Services, of which NIH is part, is being funded through a continuing resolution, which expires December 3. NIH said that it "will consider upward adjustments to these levels after the final appropriation is enacted, but expects institutions to monitor their expenditures carefully during this period."
