On August 30, 2006, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued a notice in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts ( http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-06-094.html ) to seek public comments regarding NIH's proposed policy for the creation of a centralized NIH GWAS data repository. A 60 day comment period was established upon publication of that notice. A subsequent notice containing identical information was also published in the Federal Register on August 30, 2006 ( http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/2422/01jan20061800/edocket.access.gpo.gov/2006/E6-14416.htm ).
The purpose of this notice is to inform all interested parties that the comment period originally identified in the August 30, 2006 NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts has been extended for thirty days, in order to maximize the opportunity for interested individuals and organizations to provide comments to NIH on this proposed policy.
