as proposal review, proposal submission, and post submission actions prior to
issuance of the award, such as supplemental material submission and
Just-in-Time (JIT) review and submission. The HS SPPO Analyst also acts as the
official intermediary between the Principal Investigator and the NIH.
For F30 & F32 NIH fellowship proposals and NIH Loan Repayment Program proposals, HS SPPO is the pre- and post-award office for all Health Sciences. While pre-award

conditions, university policies, and federal regulations and requirements, and
finally, acceptance of awards.
