    Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality
    National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

This Notice alerts the scientific research community of plans to eliminate most appendix materials for applications submitted to the NIH, AHRQ or NIOSH for due dates on or after January 25, 2017. Application instructions will be updated by November 25, 2016 to reflect this change. Additional information regarding this change is contained in the guide notice.

  • Changes to the NIH/AHRQ/NIOSH Policy on Post-Submission Materials for Applications Submitted for Due Dates On or After January 25, 2017
    (NOT-OD-16-130) National Institutes of Health
    Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality
    National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

This Notice simplifies and consolidates current NIH and AHRQ policy concerning post-submission materials, and extends this policy to NIOSH. Post-submission application materials are those submitted after submission of the grant application but prior to the initial peer review. The policy is based on the principle that, for the majority of applications, the only post-submission materials that these agencies will accept are those resulting from an unforeseen event. The policy on post-submission application materials is not intended to correct oversights/errors discovered after submission of the application. Additional information regarding this change is contained in the guide notice.
