Many NIH funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) have multiple due dates each year for up to three years. A lot can change over three years, so revisit your FOA within 30 days of your due date (pay extra attention to the Related Notices section) and you can ensure you are aware of the latest requirements before finalizing and submitting your application.
As you develop your Data Management and Sharing Plans, make sure you do not include hypertext (e.g., hyperlinks and URLs) in the DMS Plan attachment. Our hyperlink policy applies to DMS Plans as well, and NIH may withdraw your application from consideration if you include them.
Should Multiple DMS Plans Be Submitted With Each Application for Funding, Including Large, Multicomponent Awards?
No. The DMS Policy expects only one DMS Plan to be submitted with each application and does not expect separate Plans to be developed for individual projects under that application. In multicomponent applications, the DMS Plan must be in included in the Overall component.
Does the DMS Policy Apply To Training Activities, Including Training Programs And Fellowship Programs?
No. The Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy does not apply to awards for Training Programs (e.g., Ts, D43) and Fellowship Programs (Fs); however, Research Career Programs (Ks) are subject to the DMS Policy.
