While an eGC1 is not required when the sponsor allows direct submission of a progress report, an eGC1 is still required for many other types of progress reports.
OSP will return eGC1s without review when submitted and they are not needed.
Route a Non-Competing Renewal eGC1 when a sponsor:
Requires OSP signature or submission on a progress report such as:
- NIH non-SNAP eligible awards.
- Some federal flow-through awards, IF the pass through entity requires signature or a Letter of Intent.
- Don’t assume they require a signature.
- Confirm with the pass-through entity before preparing an eGC1.
eGC1s are NOT needed for progress reports/RPPRs when:
- Sponsor allows direct submission of the progress report by the PI.
- NIH: SNAP eligible Annual, Interim, and Final RPPRs.
- Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC)
- FHCRC does not require OSP signature on progress report materials / Letter of Intent for non-competing years.
Whether an eGC1 is required for a progress report or not, don’t forget to update the personnel section of the original eGC1 whenever personnel join or leave a research project.
Personnel added to an eGC1 will need to complete a disclosure in the Financial Interest Disclosure System (FIDS).
