The NIH recently released a notice instructing applicants to continue using the current set of agency-specific forms in their grant applications despite their current expiration date of August 31, 2015. The NIH is allowing continued use of these forms pending OMB approval of the updated forms. Please see notice NOT-OD-15-146 for the complete list of current forms affected. Once the updated forms are approved by OMB, NIH will provide an implementation plan for the new forms.
In addition, the NIH has rebranded the eRA Commons Help Desk to the “eRA Service Desk.” Please see NOT-OD-15-147 for further details.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
