National Institutes of Health

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is pleased to announce the 
publication of the “Proactive Compliance Site Visits 2000: A Compendium 
of Findings and Observations” 
(  This 
document is available on the Grants Compliance and Oversight Web page 
(, which is 
linked on the Office of Extramural Research (OER) homepage 
( under Grant Topics.    

As a result of the ten Proactive Compliance Site Visits (PCSVs) 
conducted by NIH during FY2000, the Division of Grants Compliance and 
Oversight in the Office of Policy for Extramural Research 
Administration, OER, has developed a compendium that summarizes the 
observations and comments from the NIH site visit team as well as 
institutional observations.  

A key feature of the compendium is “Examples of Compliance in Action,” 
which describes practices observed during the site visits.  The 
Compendium is organized into four sections:  Introduction, 
Participating Institutions, Summary of General Observations, and 
Summary of Subject Matter Topic Observations.  It is in the last 
section that information on each topic area and Examples of Compliance 
in Action may be found.

NIH is making this document available to the broader biomedical 
research community as an educational tool to promote awareness of and 
compliance with NIH policies.  As NIH conducts further PCSVs, 
additional information will be made available on the Grants Compliance 
and Oversight website.


Questions about the Compendium or the NIH PCSV initiative may be 
directed to the Division of Grants Compliance and Oversight staff at 
(301) 435-0949.
