As part of the continuing effort to move to electronic processes, NIH is now piloting a new eRA Commons module, which allows submission of relinquishing statements. NIH is also piloting the electronic submission of applications through Grants.gov for post-award changes in grantee organization or grantee organizational status. The following will be accepted electronically:
- The Official Statement Relinquishing Interests and Rights in a Public Health Service Research Grant (PHS 3734 Form) (relinquishing statement). For more information see the Guide Notice.
- Change in Grantee Organizational Status: Successor-in-Interest Applications for Existing NIH Grants (Type 6). For more information see the Guide Notice or Parent Announcement.
- Post-award Change of Grantee Institution (Type 7) requests. For more information see the Guide Notice or Parent Announcement.
During this open pilot, grantees may electronically submit a relinquishing statement even if the corresponding application is submitted on paper. You may also follow the current paper process as described in the NIH Grants Policy Statement. However, we encourage grantees to participate in this pilot. This is will allow you to become familiar with the electronic processes before they are required.
