Many NIH recipients are aware that funds may be available for administrative supplements to address impacts to research following severe weather or other unforeseen events. Fewer recipients, however, are aware of these other administrative supplement programs to support research within the scope and timeline of a current award.
To speed up the system processing of electronic administrative supplements, signing officials (SOs) have the option to bypass the 2-day application viewing window and allow the application to go straight to staff for processing.
I am pleased to announce the availability of a new NIH administrative supplement that recognizes the crucial role outstanding mentors play in fostering future leaders in the biomedical research enterprise. Qualified investigators can now submit proposals in response to the Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity (COSWD)-led Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) NOT-OD-22-057: Administrative Supplements to Recognize Excellence in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Mentorship. Proposals are due by April 7, 2022.
We just announced three important updates to our administrative supplement submission policies: effective immediately, NIH will begin accepting administrative supplement applications for multi-project awards electronically; and effective July 25, 2020, all supplement applications to existing single and multi-project awards must be submitted electronically and the streamlined submission method through the eRA Commons will be discontinued and replaced.
