Effective May 25, 2020 all proposals submitted to the National Institutes of Health and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality must use the newly released SF424 Application Package Form-F. All updated form sets are currently available in the Weill Research Gateway. Agencies will no longer acccept Form-E application packages after May 24th.
A high level overview of changes within the new Form-F can be found here.
NCI has released an UPDATED notice NOT-CA-20-047 announcing new effort minimums for NCI-funded grants. In addition to previously established policies for specific grant mechanisms that have been described in funding opportunity announcements (FOAs), Principal Investigators (PIs), including Project Leaders on multi-project grants, will be required to commit a minimum level of effort to be eligible for NCI funding through R01, U01, P01, and R21 grant mechanisms.
Effective immediately, competing applications that do not meet the minimum criteria will not be considered for funding unless the level of effort is raised to comply with the policy. In addition, a request to reduce the PI’s level of effort in subsequent years of funding will not be approved if the proposed level of effort falls below the minimum level. The minimum effort policy described in this notice will not apply when the grant is in a no-cost extension.
The NIH/AHRQ salary cap has increased from $192,300 to $197,300 effective January 5th, 2020.
All grant applications with a start date on or after January 5th should employ this new cost cap for all personnel with a base salary over $197,300.
All awards received with a start date on or after January 5th should employ this new cost cap for all personnel with a base salary over $197,300. For awards with active periods both before and after January 5th (i.e. 7/1/19 – 6/30/2020) it is highly recommended that departments prorate salary, employing the $192,300 cap prior to January 5th and $197,300 cap after.
Congress and the major federal funding agencies have recently taken action to publicize and protect against the potential for Foreign Influence on Research Integrity at research universities and academic medical centers.
