New NIH Grants Policy Statement Released

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has released the new NIH Grants Policy Statement (pdf), which has been aligned with the new Uniform Guidance and NIH’s implementation of the Uniform Guidance, 45 CFR Part 75 – Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for HHS Awards.  The 3/31/2015 NIH Grants Policy Statement is applicable to awards with a budget period beginning on or after 12/26/2014 and awards that received supplemental funding on or after 12/26/2014.  NIH has also published a Significant Changes document to summarize some of the revisions made to the Grants Policy Statement.

Please note that grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods prior to 12/26/2014 should refer to the 10/1/2013 NIH Grants Policy Statement.
