Interim Guidance on Resumption of NIH Extramural Activities

Dear  Colleagues:

A new page (http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/postshutdown.jsp) has been developed directly off the main NSF website that includes both the Important Notice as well as supplemental guidance that addresses grant and cooperative agreement related policy and systems issues.  This page will be of interest to your membership and we would appreciate your sharing this link as soon as possible. This page will continue to be updated as new information becomes available. 

Policy-related questions regarding the shutdown may be addressed to policy@nsf.gov.

Best,
Jean

Interim Guidance on Resumption of NIH Extramural Activities

Notice Number: NOT-OD-14-002

Key Dates
Release Date: October 17, 2013

Related Announcements
None

Issued by
National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Purpose

NIH is working to reestablish dates for grant and contract submissions, determine how to handle missed review meetings, and reschedule dates for training and other activities that were scheduled to occur during and immediately following the period of the government shutdown.

As of today, we can confirm that we will be rescheduling all October grant application submission deadlines to the November timeframe (specific dates to be announced in a future Notice). By delaying due dates that occurred both during the lapse in funding and in the week following, applicants will have access to NIH staff and the help desks as they develop their applications.

Peer review meetings that were due to be held between October 1 and October 17 have been cancelled and are being rescheduled.

We expect the eRA Commons will be available for public access on Monday, October 21.

NIH will provide additional information, including a Notice on NIH operations during a continuing resolution, as soon as it is available.
