This addendum is to inform potential applicants of two changes in 
RFA-DK-03-022:  a change in the handling of fiscal and administrative 
costs on subcontracts and the readiness of three networks to accept 
ancillary studies.

CHANGE TO HANDLING OF FISCAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS.
The original RFA INCLUDED fiscal and administrative costs on 
subcontracts towards the $1 million per year direct cost funding 
limitation.   This policy will be changed beginning with the next 
receipt date for the RFA, consistent with new NIH policy (see April 30, 
2004 NIH Guide, 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-04-040.html). 

For applications to the November 19, 2004 and July 19, 2005 receipt 
dates, an applicant may request a project period of up to 5 years and a 
budget for direct costs of up to $1 million per year, EXCLUDING fiscal 
and administrative costs on subcontracts.  As before, you are strongly 
encouraged to discuss proposed budgets with the IC program official for 
the parent trial or network prior to extensive preparation of your 
application.

Applications funded in FY 2004 will be subject to the original RFA cost 
limitations; however, any revised and resubmitted applications 
originally submitted to the March 19, 2004 receipt date will be subject 
to the new policy.

NETWORKS AND TRIALS READY TO ACCEPT ANCILLARY STUDIES.
This addendum also announces the readiness of three trials or networks 
to conduct ancillary studies:

1)  The Longitudinal Assessment of Bariatric Surgery (LABS) study, 
formerly know as the Bariatric Surgery Clinical Research Consortium.    
http://www.niddklabs.org

2)  The Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis Clinical Research Network (NASH 
CRN).  http://www.nashcrn.com

3) Treatment Options for Type 2 Diabetes in Adolescents and Youth 
(TODAY) http://www.todaystudy.org

Applications for ancillary studies to these trials or networks may be 
accepted for the remaining receipt dates, November 19, 2004, and July 
19, 2005.   

All other aspects of the RFA remain unchanged, and the other trials and 
networks listed in the original RFA continue to be available for 
ancillary studies.
