A Relinquishing Statement is required as part of the Change of Institution process enabling an extramural recipient institution to transfer an active grant to another institution. The process is initiated by the signing official of the institution that holds the award, who submits a Relinquishing Statement in eRA Commons and identifies the institution that will take over the award. This process must occur before the expiration of the current approved project period. The receiving institution must then submit a Change of Grantee Organization application using the Change of Grantee Organization opportunity found on the Parent Funding Opportunity Announcement page under Post-award Administrative Action Announcements. Learn more in the Grants Policy Statement, Section 220.127.116.11 Change of Recipient Organization.
