Original text:

NICHD intends to commit approximately $2 million dollars in total costs [direct plus Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs] in FY 2008 to fund two to three new and/or competing continuation grants in response to this RFA. An RU applicant may request a project period of up to five years and a budget for direct costs up to $150,000 per year for RU base costs. Additional funds for the execution of protocols will be awarded to the RU under "patient care costs” and “other costs,” as appropriate.  Applications for the RUs should also include a request for $414,613 direct costs under Other Expenses as restricted funds to be used for common protocols. Fixed budgets for protocols will be negotiated at a later date. These funds are to be included for NICHD budgetary planning purposes only and may be adjusted upwards/downwards as necessary.

Other Submission Requirements/Budget Request

Original text:

An RU applicant may request a project period of up to five years and a base budget for direct costs up to $150,000 in the first year. Additional funds for the execution of protocols will be awarded to the RU under "patient care costs” or “other expenses,” as appropriate.  Fixed budgets to support recruitment to common protocols will be negotiated at a later date, but for NICHD budgetary planning purposes, applications for the RU's should include a request for $140,000 direct costs under Other Expenses for restricted protocol funds. These funds are to be included for NICHD budgetary planning purposes only and may be adjusted upwards/downwards as necessary. Once an application has been favorably recommended and is being considered for funding, the RU will be required to complete protocol budgets for those protocols underway in the network. These budgets will consist of specific protocol-related allowance and will be negotiated based on the cost of conducting the study, including the number of subjects to be enrolled in the protocol at the RU.
