NIH ANNOUNCES CHANGE IN PROCESS—CENTRALIZING THE RECEIPT OF PROGRESS 
REPORTS FOR ALL NIH INSTITUTES/CENTERS EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 1, 2004

RELEASE DATE:  July 23, 2004

NOTICE:  NOT-OD-04-054 (see update NOT-OD-04-063)

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

As NIH continues towards its goal of end-to-end electronic research 
administration, business practices are being revised to improve 
efficiency and service to the grantee community.  Effective with non-
competing progress reports due on/after October 1, 2004, NIH is 
centralizing receipt and initial processing of all NIH non-competing 
progress reports.  The new centralized mailing address for all NIH 
Institutes/Centers (IC) will be announced in a separate NIH Guide 
Notice issued after September 1, 2004.  As part of this centralized 
activity, all progress reports will be scanned and stored in the eRA 
Enterprise system.  As a result, the scanned images will also be 
available to grantee institutions through the eRA Commons.

Progress reports that are due before October 1st should continue to be 
mailed directly to the NIH awarding IC.  Those addresses can be found 
at:  http://grants.nih.gov/grants/type5_mailing_addresses.htm

Note this new business process affects only non-competing progress 
reports currently mailed directly to NIH ICs.  It does NOT change the 
Center for Scientific Review mailing address used for all new and 
competing grants nor that process.  The new non-competing process will 
use a unique address.   

It should also be noted that this change is only for progress reports 
received by NIH ICs.  Progress reports for grants to other DHHS 
agencies that use the PHS2590 and/or the PHS416-9 should continue to 
use the mailing addresses noted for those agencies.
