NIH Updated Version of Application Forms for Deadlines on or after January 25, 2023

In response to their new Data Management and Sharing Policy, NIH has announced an updated version of their application forms, for use with opportunities with deadlines on or after January 25, 2023. When initiating an NIH application in ASSIST, please be sure to select the appropriate set of forms for your application; see the full text here:  https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-22-195.html

An important change to note is the ability to include “Data Management and Sharing Costs” in both the Modular and R&R Budgets. This will require an Additional Narrative Justification for the Modular Budget, but will be a separate line item within the R&R Budget and will include a brief Data Management and Sharing Justification.

If you have questions about the new Policy or Forms, please contact our office at ospa@siu.edu.
