NIH has recently updated its policy on what materials can be accepted after an application has been submitted but before initial peer review. Here are the changes:
- News of a promotion or positive tenure decision will be accepted if received at least 30 calendar days prior to the review meeting and if confirmed by the authorized organization representative;
- Exceptions that previously applied only to requests for applications (RFAs) with a single submission date now apply to the last due date of RFAs with multiple submission deadlines; and
- Some specific types of personnel information associated with institutional training and training-related grants will now be accepted.
See NOT-OD-10-115 for all other requirements and exceptions.
