AHRQ CONCURRENCE WITH NIH POLICY CHANGE (NOT-OD-04-007) CONCERNING K08s 
CONCURRENT SUPPORT FROM CAREER DEVELOPMENT AWARD AND A RESEARCH GRANT

RELEASE DATE:  December 19, 2003

NOTICE:  NOT-HS-04-002

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
 (http://www.ahrq.gov)

With this Notice, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) 
announces its concurrence with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) 
Notice “Mentored Career Development Awards: Change in NIH Policy 
Concerning Concurrent Support from Career Development Award and a 
Research Grant”, published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts on 
November 14, 2003, NOT-OD-04-007.  This Notice modified NIH’s policy on 
mentored career development awards (K08 Awards) to allow award 
recipients to hold concurrent support from their career award and a 
competing research grant when recognized as a Principal Investigator or 
subproject Director.  Thus, mentored career award recipients, in the 
last two years of their support period, will be permitted to reduce the 
level of effort required for the career award and replace that effort 
with an AHRQ or NIH research grant or subproject provided they remain 
in a mentored situation.  For the complete NIH Notice, see 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-04-007.html.
