Navigating through the February Submission Deadlines – Message from Lynne Chronister

Posted on December 18, 2009 at 4:59pm

Dear Colleagues:

Since new years are always a time for change, the National Institutes of Health is keeping with tradition. NIH has recently made significant changes in the application forms and requirements. These changes are effective the 25th of January. A summary of these changes has been posted to the OSP website to help you navigate through the February submission deadlines.

In January, OSP will provide two to three information sessions to go through the changes. We will announce the dates, times and locations shortly. With the holiday coming up soon we felt that early January may work best.

I, and all of the OSP staff, are urging early submission of proposals, well before the required 10, 5 and 2 day UW final deadlines. We anticipate a large number of submissions and a larger than usual number of Grants.gov and ERA Commons error reports. Proposals received only by the 2 day deadline may very likely not make it through the submission process. A reminder also that complete proposals must be submitted to OSP no less than 5 days prior to the deadline for review.

Waivers will not be approved for proposal that miss the 2 day advance deadline unless they fall under the GIM 19 guidelines.

Thank you! Please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the OSP Administrators if you have question on the NIH changes.

Have a wonderful holiday!


Lynne Chronister,
Assistant Vice Provost for Research and Director
of Sponsored Programs
