From time to time we need to update our application forms to maintain consistency with and Office of Management and Budget federal-wide requirements, and to incorporate changes in NIH policies and processes. NIH issued a Guide notice on April 27, announcing how we are gearing up for a transition from the current forms (“FORMS-D”) to the next iteration of forms for due dates on or after January 25, 2018. Highlights of the new FORMS-E will include:

  • Consolidation of human subjects, inclusion enrollment, and clinical trial information previously collected across multiple agency forms
  • Expansion and use of discrete form fields for clinical trial information to
    • provide the level of information needed for peer review;
    • lead applicants through clinical trial information collection requirements;
    • present key information to reviewers and agency staff in a consistent format; and
    • align with (where possible) and position us for future data exchange with
  • Incorporation of recent changes to R&R Budget and SBIR/STTR Information Form

We will begin posting funding opportunities with the new FORMS-E packages in October. Read the NIH Guide Notice for more information: NOT-OD-17-062 – New NIH “FORMS-E” Grant Application Forms and Instructions Coming for Due Dates On or After January 25, 2018
