New NIH Policy on Post-Submission Application Materials

The NIH has announced a new policy on post-submission grant application materials, which will be effective for applications submitted for the September 25, 2010 receipt date and thereafter. Under the new policy, the only post-submission grant application materials that NIH will accept are those resulting from unforeseen administrative issues. This option is to be used when an unexpected event such as the departure of a participant, natural disaster, etc.,  has occurred, not to correct oversights/errors discovered after submission of the application.  For additional information, please see:   http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-10-115.html
