The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) announces changes

effective immediately for the Clinical Associate Physician (CAP) and

the Minority Clinical Associate Physician (MCAP) Supplements to

General Clinical Research Center (GCRC) Grants (activity code: M01).

These two competitive supplements were previously announced in the

NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts, Vol. 19, No. 31, August 24, 1990,

as PA-90-30 for CAP supplements and PA-90-29 for MCAP supplements.

The changes for these awards are as follows:

o  Applications (both new and revised) for these two supplemental

awards will be received on a single annual receipt date - October 1.

o  Awards will made effective the following July 1.

o  There will be no limitation on the number of CAP or MCAP

applications that can be submitted from each funded GCRC.

o  There will be no limitation on the number of CAP or MCAP awards

that may be concurrently funded at each GCRC.

o  Applications that are complete will be evaluated for scientific

and technical merit by an appropriate peer review group convened in

accordance with the standard NIH peer review procedures.  As part of

the initial merit review, all applications will receive a written

critique and undergo a process in which only those applications

deemed to have the highest scientific merit, generally the top half

of applications under review, will be discussed, assigned a priority

score, and receive a second level review by the appropriate national

advisory council or board.

A table contrasting the old and new policies for CAP and MCAP

supplements to M01 grants is presented below:
