We have determined the following items, from recent NIH Guide notices,
to be applicable to both faculty and administrators. Please read or
forward as appropriate.

* The NIH Operates under a Continuing Resolution
(NOT-OD-12-004)

National Institutes of Health

NIH is operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) that was enacted on
October 4, 2011. The CR continues NIH’s operations at the FY 2011 level
minus 1.5%. Until FY 2012 appropriations are enacted, NIH will issue
non-competing research grant awards at a level below (generally up to
90% of the previously committed level) that indicated on the Notice of
Grant Award. NIH will consider providing upward adjustments to those
awarded levels after the FY 2012 appropriation is enacted

* Revised Multiple Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s)
Policy to Allow Change with Prior Approval
(NOT-OD-11-118)

National Institutes of Health

The Notice amends the NIH Multiple Program Director(s)/Principal
Investigator (PD/PI) policy to allow post award changes from or to
multiple PD/PI awards with prior approval of the Grants Management
Officer (“GMO”). Specifically, it provides procedures for changing a
project from a single PD/PI project to a multiple PD/PI project or for
changing the makeup of multiple PDs/PIs. Please see the Notice for
detailed information on this policy change.

* Update of NIH Late Application Policy to Reflect Change in Due
Dates for New Investigator R01 Resubmission Applications
(NOT-OD-12-001)

National Institutes of Health

* Revised Policy: Managing Conflict of Interest in the Initial
Peer Review of NIH Grant and Cooperative Agreement Applications
(NOT-OD-11-120)

National Institutes of Health

Best regards,
