Notice Number: NOT-GM-13-134
Release Date: September 23, 2013
National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)
The NIH recently updated all active Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) to accommodate NIH’s transition to updated application forms (NOT-OD-13-074). A ‘FORMS-C’ application forms package was posted in Grants.gov for PAR-11-028 as part of that effort. A posting error was made when updating this FOA and the PHS 398 Modular Budget form was not included in the posted application package. A revised application package was added to the FOA (identified in Grants.gov by a Competition ID of ‘FORMS-C-REVISED’).
What should you do?
1. Use the FORMS-C-REVISED application package for all new downloads.
2. If you had already downloaded the ‘FORMS-C’ application package and your application circumstances require that you use the R&R Budget form, then no action is necessary. NIH will continue to accept applications that use the ‘FORMS-C’ package.
3. If you had downloaded the ‘FORMS-C’ application package but need to use the PHS 398 Modular budget, then you must return to the FOA to download and complete a new ‘FORMS-C-REVISED’ form package in order to successfully submit to this opportunity.
