The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced a new policy on post-submission application materials. Effective with the September 25 NIH grant application submission date, the only materials that will be accepted after the submission of the application but before the initial peer review will be materials that “result from unforeseen administrative issues.” Some exceptions are listed in NIH notice NOT-OD-10-091. This policy does not modify existing “Just-in-Time” requirements or requests for additional information after the initial peer review.
The new policy is intended to expedite timely peer review, reduce burden on NIH extramural staff and peer reviewers, and provide a uniform amount of materials for each grant application going to review.
NIH notes that post-submission of application materials is not required. Adding materials to reviewer workload may be counterproductive, so applicants should consider carefully the need to send post-submission materials. Read more.
