What happens if a resource or support was not reported to NIH previously?
A resource or support not reported to NIH previously, when would you submit to NIH? As soon it becomes known, updated OS should be sent to the GMS listed in the most recent NOA.
Note for Subawards or Multi-Project Awards
Indicate the project number, name of PD/PI, and source of support for the overall project. Provide all other information (e.g. total award amount, person months) for the subproject only.
Note on Foreign Affiliations, Appointments, and/or Support
- Institutions are
required to submit copies of contracts specific to senior/key-personnel foreign appointments and/or employment with a foreign institution for all foreign activities and resources that are reported in Other Support.
Personal service contracts for lab staff do not need to be provided.
Translations are required, if they are not in English. Note, this does not include personal service contracts, or employment contracts for fellows supported by foreign entities.
NIH will accept machine-read translations.
- These contracts MUST be uploaded at time of JIT, following the Other Support documents.
Expectations for Reporting In-Kind Resources
- In-kind contributions, e.g. office/laboratory space, equipment, supplies, employees, students.
Paid-Direct Graduate Students or Post Docs, performing research activities in the lab is a resource available in support of the PI or other key personnel.
This must be reported as in-kind contribution in Other Support.If relationship is solely mentor/mentee, then this is not a resource.
- If the time commitment or dollar value of the in-kind contribution is not readily ascertainable, the recipient must provide reasonable estimates.
Researchers can list zero effort, but must provide the estimated $ value of the in-kind resource. The effort and $ value cannot be both be zero.
an in-kind contribution, such as technology, chemicals, etc. is intended for use on the project being proposed to NIH in the application, the
information must be included as part of the Facilities and Other Resources or Equipment section of the application and does not need to be replicated on Other Support.
The former Other Support Format Page did not collect structured data or allow recipients to provide detail on in-kind contributions.
For Other Support submitted in ASSIST, the PDF must be flattened after it has been signed electronically by the individual the Other Support is for in order to avoid submission errors.
