Footnotes:

[1] This is the only location in the NIHGPS where these terms are defined. If an abbreviation used in the NIHGPS is unfamiliar, the reader should consult this list for its meaning.

[2] HHS components include SAMHSA, FDA, CDC, IHS, AHRQ, HRSA, ACF, AoA, OPHS, and CMS.

[3] Although the government-wide requirements do not cover grants to for-profit organizations, HHS has included them in the coverage of 45 CFR Part 74.

[4] ONR is the cognizant agency for negotiation of F&A costs for some NIH grantees.

[5] Some ICs review applications for Institutional National Research Service Awards (T32) only once a year. See the Appendix in Part II of the NIHGPS.

[6] This certification is accomplished by the signature of the AOO on the application. States need only certify as to their principals.

[7] 42 CFR Part 73, Select Agents and Toxins; and 7 CFR Part 331 and 9 CFR Part 121, Possession, Use, and Transfer of Biological Agents and Toxins.

[8] As of February 28, 2001, OHRP no longer accepted applications for Multiple Project Assurances (MPAs) or Single Project Assurances (SPAs) limited to HHS-supported research, to special categories of research, or to individual research projects. Current MPAs will remain in effect until the designated expiration date or December 31, 2003, whichever comes first; however, MPA organizations may file a new FWA at any time prior to that date. OHRP will not accept changes to existing MPAs (except for IRB membership updates). If changes are necessary, the organization should file an FWA. Current SPAs will remain in effect through the expiration of their respective grant (or contract) award and any non-competing continuation award.

[9] Protecting Human Research Subjects: Institutional Review Board Guidebook, 1993, Stock No. 017-040-00525-3, may be ordered from the Superintendent of Documents, telephone: 202-512-1800. This Guidebook is also available from OHRP’s website (http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/irb/irb_guidebook.htm).

[10]Larger non-profit organizations that are specifically listed in Attachment C to OMB Circular A-122 are subject to the Federal cost principles applicable to commercial organizations (48 CFR Subpart 31.2) rather than to the cost principles for non-profit organizations.

[11] This term and the term “indirect costs” may be used interchangeably to determine applicable policies. For NIH purposes, including the NIHGPS, these costs will be referred to as F&A costs; however, other documents or non-NIH functions may refer to them as “indirect costs.”

[12] For this purpose, “data” means recorded information, regardless of the form or media on which it may be recorded, and includes writings, films, sound recordings, pictorial reproductions, drawings, designs, or other graphic representations, procedural manuals, forms, diagrams, work flow charts, equipment descriptions, data files, data processing or computer programs (software), statistical records, and other research data.

[13] State governments will use, manage, and dispose of equipment acquired under a grant in accordance with state laws and procedures as specified in 45 CFR 92.32.

[14] The determination leading to such disputes may be made by an HHS official other than the GMO and may affect NIH grants as well as other HHS grants.

[15] This list may be obtained from the State Liaison Officers designated by their respective states to administer this program or from the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20004 (telephone: 202-606-8503; website: http://www.achp.gov/). The National Trust for Historic Preservation is located at 1785 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20036 (telephone: 202-588-6000; website: http://www.nationaltrust.org/).

[16] References are to the latest editions of cited publications. Grantees and their contractors are responsible for determining what applies at the time of the affected activity.

[17] In 2002, the National Research Service Awards program was renamed the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards program as a tribute to Dr. Kirschstein’s years of exceptional service to the nation.

[18] NIH ICs use the term F&A costs for all types of applicants and recipients; however, for-profit organizations will find that DFAS and organizations external to NIH refer to these costs as “indirect costs.”
