NIH will make the Project Outcomes Section of all Interim and Final Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs) submitted on or after October 1, 2017 available to the general public via the NIH RePORTER. Please see notice NOT-OD-18-103 for the full details.
Reminder: NIH Forms-E application packages are required for submissions due on or after January 25, 2018.- see NOT-OD-18-009 (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-18-009.html). This change will apply to all funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) and all application types (new, resubmission, renewal, revision). NIH advises that applications submitted using incorrect forms will automatically be withdrawn by the NIH Center for Scientific Review Division of Receipt and Referral and will not be reviewed. Application guides for FORMS-E application packages are now available on the ‘How to Apply – Application Guide’ page (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/how-to-apply-application-guide.html).
The most significant change with the new FORMS-E application package is the addition of a new PHS Human Subjects and Clinical Trials Information form. This form consolidates human subjects, inclusion enrollment, and clinical trial information previously collected across multiple agency forms. The form collects information on human subjects and clinical trials at the study level. Here is additional information regarding this New Human Subjects and Clinical Trial Information Form.
What You Need to Know
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is already up and running on Workspace and are ready to assist with you with the transition. As of January 1, 2018 Grants.gov Adobe Forms Applications will be officially replaced with the Grants.gov Workspace solution..
What You Need to Do
We recommend becoming more familiar with the features of Workspace with this overview presentation, which also provides live links to Grants.gov training resources. Unlike the Adobe Forms Applications, for full multi-user access, Workspace requires that users register with Grants.gov first. Please follow this step-by-step guidance to register in Grants.gov.
NIH & NSF Submissions?
At present we recommend that NIH proposals continue to be prepared and submitted using ASSIST, as it has some functionality that Workspace does not yet have. We’ll reassess this over time and provide future updates on this.
NSF proposals should continue to utilize FASTLANE as their primary submission portal.
