On January 17, 1992, the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health

Administration (ADAMHA) published the updated National Research Service

Awards (NRSA) for Institutional Training Grants Announcement in the NIH

Guide for Grants and Contracts (Vol. 21, No. 2).  This program

announcement permits, for the first time, the possibility of research

recruitment positions on institutional training grants.  The purpose of

this notice is to clarify the guidance contained in the announcement

regarding the use of the recruitment positions (see RESEARCH

RECRUITMENT).  The positions are subject to the same constraints

regarding short-term training positions, and appointments may not

exceed three months (PHS Act, Section 487(d)(4).

Also, while not immediately subject to the payback requirement because

the time spent in such positions will usually total less than 12

months, the time is accrued with any future NRSA support in calculating

the total service obligation (see PAYBACK REQUIREMENT and CONDITIONS OF

AWARD).  The candidates for these positions must, therefore, be advised

of the service payback requirement before an appointment to the

training grant is offered.  This obligation requires that any NRSA

support in excess of 12 months is to be repaid by an equal period of

health-related research or health-related teaching (see 42 CFR 66.110).

These research recruitment candidates, like other trainees appointed to

the training grant, must complete and return to the ADAMHA a Statement

of Appointment Form (Form PHS 2271, rev. 10/91) and a Payback Agreement

Form (Form PHS 6031, rev. 10/91).  These forms must be completed and

returned at the beginning of each appointment and reappointment.  At

the end of each appointment, a Termination Notice (Form PHS 416-7, rev.

10/91) must be completed and returned to the ADAMHA.  Specific

information about the NRSA service payback requirement is available in

the Guidelines for NRSA Individual Awards - Institutional Grants, NIH

Guide for Grants and Contracts, Vol. 13, No. 1, January 6, 1984.
