Notice Number: NOT-AR-05-007
Release Date: July 6, 2005
The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) in consultation with National Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases Advisory Council, announces a change in policy for acceptance and competitive renewal of unsolicited Program Project grant applications.
Effective with this announcement, the NIAMS will no longer accept unsolicited applications for new (Type 1) Program Project (P0l) grants. An exception will be made for first time amended (A1 revision) applications received for the October 1, 2005 receipt date. (Please also see the NIAMS policy and procedure for acceptance of applications that are greater than $500,000 per year in direct costs - http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-AR-03-004.html).
Competing continuation applications will only be considered for Program Project grants for a second competing award, for a total project period of up to 10 years. All Program Project grants that have already competed successfully for one or more continuation awards, (i.e., currently in sixth or later years of support), will end at the completion of their current project period, and will not be continued further.
All non-competing commitments for future year support made to current program project grantees will continue to be honored as indicated on the current Notice of Award.
Current P01 awardees are strongly encouraged to contact the NIAMS program official identified on the Notice of Grant Award for further information and to discuss future options for the transition from support under the P01 to support under other investigator-initiated grant mechanisms. For additional information or for questions concerning this Notice, contact the appropriate extramural program officials listed at the following NIAMS Web site: http://www.niams.nih.gov/rtac/index.htm.
