NIH Guide Notice-Prior Approval Requests for Revisions to an Approved DMS plan

Dear Colleagues:

Below is a summary of a recent NIH Guide Notice. Please review the notice and forward it to faculty, researchers and staff, as appropriate. Questions regarding the notices should be directed to your Contract and Grant Officer.

The purpose of this Notice is to remind the extramural research community that any changes to an approved Data Management and Sharing Plan (DMS Plan) (for funded awards subject to the Final NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy) requires the recipient to submit a timely formal prior approval request to the funding NIH Institute, Center, or Office (ICO). This notice also informs the community that recipients must submit these requests through the Prior Approval Module in eRA Commons. This functionality will be available for NIH grants effective October 12, 2023, and will be used exclusively for submitting requests for updating the DMS Plan. Emails and other communications are not acceptable. Please review the full guide notice for additional information.
