NIH – Data Management & Sharing Proposal Budget Instruction Update
Effective for Applications Submitted for due dates on or After 10/05/2023
NIH will no longer require a single Data Management & Sharing cost line item in proposals budgets. For applications submitted for due dates on or after October 5, 2023, DMS costs must be requested in appropriate cost categories, e.g., personnel, equipment, supplies, and other expenses.
While the single cost line item will no longer be required, NIH will require estimated DMS cost details within the Budget Justification attachment of the R&R Budget Form or Additional Narrative Justification attachment of the PHS 398 Modular Budget Form.
